I listened to this book. It was excellent, but very depressing. It was helpful, learning more about Afghanistan's history.
Ok book. John Cecil Rhodes was a racist jerk, a product of him time with all the supercilious airs of British superiority. The main point of the book was that Merchant kings mixed politics with business. The states would grant monopolies to the companies to profit in the new world/spiceries. Away from the law and order of their sponsoring Nation, these men created their own law and destiny to deal with the challenges ahead. The author does a great job of referencing Adam Smith in the end, who stated no one really benefits from monopolies and business owners look out for their own interest and should not be involved with politics. The Merchant Kings the book looked at where: Jan Coen of Portugal who ruled the Spice Islands Pieter Stuyvesant- I forget what he did Robert Clive of India Alexandr Baronov for Russia in Alaska George Simpson of Hudson Bay Company in Canada John Cecil Rhodes in South Africa. He created Rhodesia, named after himself. Had all the diamond mine claims on the De Beers farm.
An incredibly controversial book that you will want to discuss with others. The ending certainly provides a twist.
Best. Bad guy. Ever.
