Read full description of the books:



Bij de opdeling van Afrika door de grote mogendheden in 1884 viel de Congo toe aan koning Leopold ii van België. Hij zou de inheemse bevolking laten profiteren van zijn menslievendheid. In werkelijkheid is het relaas van de exploitatie van de Congo het verhaal van een van de grootste misdaden in de geschiedenis: een zwarte holocaust die het leven heeft gekost van naar schatting tien miljoen mensen. Maar Adam Hochschild beschrijft niet alleen de gruweldaden. Zijn boek is ook het verslag van de eerste grote mensenrechtenbeweging.

Adam Hochschild heeft met gebruikmaking van de oorspronkelijke getuigenissen van Afrikanen een meeslepend verhaal geschreven over een drama van ongekende proporties.

Read information about the author

Ebook De Geest van Koning Leopold II read Online! Hochschild was born in New York City. As a college student, he spent a summer working on an anti-government newspaper in South Africa and subsequently worked briefly as a civil rights worker in Mississippi in 1964. Both were politically pivotal experiences about which he would later write in his book Finding the Trapdoor. He later was part of the movement against the Vietnam War, and, after several years as a daily newspaper reporter, worked as a writer and editor for the leftwing Ramparts magazine. In the mid-1970s, he was one of the co-founders of Mother Jones.

Hochschild's first book was a memoir, Half the Way Home: a Memoir of Father and Son (1986), in which he described the difficult relationship he had with his father. His later books include The Mirror at Midnight: a South African Journey (1990; new edition, 2007), The Unquiet Ghost: Russians Remember Stalin (1994; new edition, 2003), Finding the Trapdoor: Essays, Portraits, Travels (1997), which collects his personal essays and reportage, and King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa (1998; new edition, 2006), a history of the conquest and colonization of the Congo by Belgium's King Léopold II. His Bury the Chains: Prophets and Rebels in the Fight to Free an Empire's Slaves, published in 2005, is about the antislavery movement in the British Empire.

Hochschild has also written for The New Yorker, Harper's Magazine, The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Magazine, and The Nation. He was also a commentator on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. Hochschild's books have been translated into twelve languages.

A frequent lecturer at Harvard's annual Nieman Narrative Journalism Conference and similar venues, Hochschild lives in San Francisco and teaches writing at the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley. He is married to sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild.
