Today I heard Adam Hochschild tell Terry Gross about King Leopold's ghastly crimes and U.S. culpability, documented in his new book King Leopold's Ghost. The book sounded superb --- has anyone here read it who would like to share views on it? Michiko Kakutani reviewed it in the Sept. 1 NY Times and managed to forget to mention the U.S. role in recognizing Leopold's personal slave pit.
