Jen K’s #CBR IV Review #51: To End All Wars

Nonfiction about the antiwar/pacifist movement in England during World War I. Worth the read for a perspective that isn’t usually discussed.

Jen K’s #CBR4 Review #9: King Leopold’s Ghost

Absolutely amazing piece of non-fiction about King Leopold II and the exploitation of the Congo.  One of the reasons the author says this has been forgotten by history is because shortly after this happened, Belgium became the victim of German during World War I.  Definitely worth checking out.  Read my review here.

Jen K’s #CBR4 Review #3: Bury the Chains by Adam Hochschild

The story of how the British Empire abolished slavery – very informative, and well-written.  Read the review here.
