520    "In Land of Tears, historian Robert Harms reconstructs the
       chaotic process by which the heart of Africa was utterly 
       transformed in the nineteenth century and the rainforest 
       of the Congo River basin became one of the most brutally 
       exploited places on earth. Ranging from remote African 
       villages to European diplomatic meetings to Connecticut 
       piano-key factories, Harms reveals how equatorial Africa 
       became fully, fatefully, and tragically enmeshed within 
       our global world"--|cProvided by publisher
