King Leopold's Ghost Overview

The best-selling novel King Leopold's Ghost by Adam Hochschild details the effects of King Leopold II's reign on the Congo Free State. Also known as the Belgian Congo, the region and its people suffered immensely under the Belgian King's rule. Local people were enslaved and forced to work harvesting the Congo's two major natural resources: rubber and ivory. By the end of King Leopold's tyrannical rule, the area's natural resources were exhausted and roughly half of its population had perished.
