Item Description...
David Livingstone (18131873) has been revered as one of the world's greatest explorers and missionaries, the first European to cross Africa and the first to find Victoria Falls and the source of the Congo. Tim Jeal's masterful biography reveals the man behind the myth, one capable of ruthless cruelty as well as self-sacrifice and bravery, one dogged all his life by failure as well as success.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
If Only Our Novelists Could Write So Well  Jun 19, 2007
Jeal's biography became an instant classic upon publication some years ago. It is doubtful that Livingstone will ever be so fully portrayed, "warts and all," as the saying goes. Quite apart from the life depicted, this biography is a work of art. The prose is gorgeous, quite simply among the best biographies of the decade. One is simultaneously gripped and repelled by the author's extraordinary subject. Livingstone is one of the two or three singularly impressive Victorian figures whom contemporaries admired but whom we now regard with dismay. Still, there are no such grand figures in our time, and it is doubtful any will ever emerge again with such courage and daring. He was in so many ways as hateful as his age, but a better man than we in our time who praise ourselves for finding fault with his undeniable accomplishments from the comfort of our little lives.
One of the most important books on European imperialism in Africa  Nov 8, 2006
This is a truly amazing story of dishonesty and brutality. Livingstone fraudulently pretended to be a great missionary after having converted only one person who later rejected the Christian faith. He then used this fraud to make large amounts of money and present a moral and financial argument for British imperialism on a grand scale in Africa. Organizations such as the London Missionary Society do not come off well here as they participated in a giant fund raising scheme to "save" Africa "for Christ". What is particularly damning is the relevation that Livingston originally (and correctly) knew that the destruction of the tribal way of life and its replacement by the Anglo Saxon versions of capitalism and Christianity would seriously endanger African lives. Filled with greed and ambition, Livingstone later deceived himself into believing his own lies.

Probably more than any other person in the Victorian age, Livingstone helped create an "Axis of Evil" between big business, big religion and larger British dreams of empire that led to the "scramble for Africa" that caused the whole continent to be on the receiving end of one of the most brutal colonial conquests in history.
Great, Sensational, absolutely fantastic book   Jun 23, 2005
This author provided a great, unbiased account of Livingstone without being disrespectful. He also ended the book with a fantastic account of how Livingstone's legacy affected the world. This is a must read for all Christians or anyone interested in 19th century history or African history in general.
