Description
In this biography, readers will discover the remarkable journey of Cecil Rhodes from England to the diamond mines, parliament houses, and battlefields of Africa. The stunning facts, vibrant images, and engaging sidebars work in conjunction with the supportive text and helpful glossary and index to give readers a look into the Age of Imperialism and into Rhodes' life as he ventured into diamond mining, created the De Beers diamond company, started a scholarship fund, settled Rhodesia, and shaped policies that limited the rights of black South Africans through his belief in Social Darwinism.
