It covers the years 1877 to 1904. During this period of his life King Leopold II of the Belgians was a dominant figure. The complexity of Stanley's relationahsip with Leopold is here described - a story of emotional duplicity and double-dealing. Stanley collaborated with the devious Leopold to outwit the nations of Europe and thus to provide the King of the Belgians with the Congo - a personal fief in the heart of Africa. The author does not diminish Stanley's greatness but points up the dark side of the man."
