Read More About It: King Leopold II and the Belgian Congo
Here are several recommended books on King Leopold II and the tragedy that was the Belgian Congo:
King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terrorism and Heroism in Colonial Africa by Adam Hochschild. This book is available in hardcover and paperback through Amazon and other sources. I cannot recommend this book enough. The original US edition was published by Houghton Mifflin.
