With the election of Pope Francis the First and the abdication of Pope Benedict, this book is truly timely.
I had it in my library before Pope Benedict made his announcement to resign. I immediately listened again.
This is a fascinating book about the mind of a European monarch who supported one of the cruelest colonizations in history. The absolute brutalization of the Congo has been hidden from most of us. Who studies Belgian history in the US?If you want to begin to understand modern African politics, you have to read this book. Well worth listening to.
