Exterminate All The Brutes, Paperback / softback Book

Exterminate All The Brutes Paperback / softback

Part of the Granta Editions series

Description

Over twenty years ago, Sven Lindqvist, one of the great pioneers of a new kind of experiential history writing, set out across Central Africa.

Obsessed with a single line from Conrad's The Heart of Darkness - Kurtz's injunction to 'Exterminate All the Brutes' - he braided an account of his experiences with a profound historical investigation, revealing to the reader with immediacy and cauterizing force precisely what Europe's imperial powers had exacted on Africa's people over the course of the preceding two centuries. Shocking, humane, crackling with imaginative energies and moral purpose, Exterminate All the Brutes stands as an impassioned, timeless classic.

It is essential reading for anybody ready to come to terms with the brutal, racist history on which Europe built its wealth.
