Letting Tarzan Swing Through History

Letting Tarzan Swing Through History

Adam Hochschild

Some time ago I wrote a book about one of the great crimes of the last 150 years: the conquest and exploitation of the Congo by King Leopold II of Belgium. When King Leopold’s Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial Africawas published, I thought I had found all the major characters in that brutal patch of history. But a few weeks ago I realized that I had left one out: Tarzan.

Thank you Mr. Hochschild,

Now I will have to read your book.

Can a herd of elephants rampage through the Republican convention? In revenge for their stolen image, and to destroy the pillagers of planetary ecology.
