I bought this book as it was highly recommended by other reviewers and that readers would love it so much they d keep re reading itI have struggled to read just a third so far and just about every page has some atrocitybarbaric behaviour on it If it isn t colonial behaviour by the British Dutch Portuguese it s barbaric behaviour by local chiefs and rulers It makes me in present times just feel ashamedNow that s not to say it s poorly written its actually very well written full of interesting facts It s very well researched so if you want facts then its a great history book written at a non academic levelIf you want to know why this world is in such a mess in terms of socialcommunity terms then this book is also a good readBut it just shows we re a sad and not very nice lotPerhaps the second half of the book will change my views but I m not sure I want to read much
