Cecil Rhodes and the Scramble for Africa

Analysts & Authors


It came to me while reading Ryszard Kapuscinskiís The Shadow of the Sun, in which he describes his life in Africa. Kapuscinski first went to Africa in 1957 and travelled there several times over the next 40 years. In this delightful book, the Polish journalist writes about his exciting times in a continent about which he says: "It is a veritable ocean, a separate planet, a varied, immensely rich cosmos. Only with the greatest simplification, for the sake of convenience, can we say "Africa." In reality, except as a geographical appellation, Africa does not exist."
