Viscount Grey, Britain's foreign secretary, declared that overseas issue had so intensely aroused the British public for 30 years. Conan Doyle wrote a pamphlet on the Congo atrocities which sold 25,000 copies in the first week alone. Yet today t one person in a thousand could say what the fuss was all about, unless, of course, they have read this amazing book.'
