The Scramble for Africa (book)
- For the historical event, see Scramble for Africa
|Preceded by||The Boer War|
|Followed by||Meetings with Remarkable Trees|
One of the book's central themes is the contrast between the humanitarian motives of David Livingstone, and the profit-making of King Leopold II, and how the different people dealt with the conflict. The book addresses underlying motives and economics, without losing sight of the individuals whose personalities and actions drove much of the Scramble. It has been reprinted a number of times since its first appearance in 1990.
