King Leopold’s Soliloquy – Mark Twain

$5.00

King Leopold’s Soliloquy is Mark Twain at his best. Originally published in 1905 as a pamphlet, this book ostensibly recounts the fictional monologue of Belgian King Leopold II speaking in his defense of the horrific colonial reign over the Congo Free State, which left tens of millions dead. Rarely included in Twain collections, this is a must for those wanting to understand the barbaric nature of colonialism, imperialism, and racial capitalism.
