Looking at travelogues, ethnographic monographs, consular reports, diaries and letters, sketches, photography and more, Burroughs examines eyewitness travel reports of atrocities committed in European-funded slave regimes in the Congo Free State, Portuguese West Africa, and the Putumayo district of the Amazon rainforest during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.
