Discover ramgovindkuruppath's Instagram King Leopold's Ghost by Adam Hochschild - History - Genocide - Human Rights - 5/5 - Travelling, it seemed topical to read about Belgium's most notorious monarch, King Leopold II. He was a 15 million man - in the same vein as Adolf Hitler. A veritable Voldemort, he studied the corporate form as an effective method of dissembling ownership and hiding colonial ambitions, to annex the Congo. Hochschild's riveting narrative chronicles Leopold's genocide and the governments that propped him up to the men that took him down (ED Morel and Roger Casement). Highly recommended for anyone who was impressed by Tharoor's speech on colonial reparations or liked William Dalrymple's article on the evils of the East India Company. .
