Description
"Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" The man who uttered those famous words was compared with Christopher Columbus in his day and became one of the late 19th-century's most newsworthy figures. Yet 100 years after Henry Morton Stanley's death, his accomplishments in Africa have largely receded from public memory or have been discredited as epitomizing the wrongs inflicted by European colonialism. In this biography, James Newman takes a closer look at Stanley's seven African journeys, reassessing Stanley's personality, his image, and his many accomplishments.

"For a record of Stanley's career and achievements, I doubt this account can be bettered."óMary S. Lovell
