The Fight for Africa's Resources

Monday, August 10, 2009

Joseph Conrad wrote in 1902 that the conquest of Africa was not a pretty thing. Now we see history repeating itself and this time it's China, Russia and the U.S. vying for Africa's resources. We talk to Thomas Pakenham, author of “The Scramble for Africa: White Man's Conquest of the Dark Continent from 1876-1912.”
