    PDF/EPUB The Scramble for Africa PDF ó The Scramble MOBI ↠ smrl.me scramble pdf, africa free, The Scramble download, The Scramble for Africa ePUBThomas Pakenham has neither the flair nor the predilection for writing about sex the way that his famous sister Antonia Fraser does Somehow Pakenham manages to devote 200 pages of his “Scramble to Africa” to King Leopold II of Belgium without once mentioning his taste for underage prostitutes The closest Pakenham comes is to acknowledge that Leopold’s second wife Christine Lacroix was indeed working in the sex trade and a mere 16 years old when Leopold had his first encounter with her In contrast Adam Hochschild in “King Leopold’s Ghost” discusses Leopold’s practice of preying on teenage girls in great depth Similarly Pakenham does not attempt to uantify the number of lives lost through the forced labour system deployed by Leopold in his Congo rubber plantations Hochschild puts forward the rather fanciful number of 10 million The 1904 Casement report commissioned by the British parliament put the number at 3 million which was no
