Respond to one of the following essay options based on Adam Hochschilds King Leopolds Ghost:
A reflective historical analysis of one historical figure from the book: What role did they play in the history of the Congo? What character traits or experiences shaped their role in history? What drew you to them and what did you discover from examining them in depth?
Why do you think Adam Hochschild titled his book King Leopolds Ghost? How does King Leopolds ghost creep up through the history of the Congo? What other ghosts appear throughout this book?
When quoting directly, use MLA citation (author last name, page number) after quotation to indicate source, e.g.: The trans-Atlantic Slave trade seemed further confirmation that Europeans had come from the land of the dead (Hochschild 16).
Please include an alphabetized (MLA format) works cited, even if you only use the one book. For Hochschild, the format is as follows:
Hochschild, Adam. King Leopolds Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa. New York: Mariner Books, 1999. Print.
Subsequent listed books follow the same format. For more details see: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/
