The African Problem and the Peace Settlement

by Edmund Dene Morel

It is an important piece of literature that sheds light on the colonization of Africa by European powers during the late 19th and early 20th century. In this book, Morel discusses the effects of European colonialism on Africa, focusing specifically on the economic exploitation of African resources and people by European powers. He argues that the African problem cannot be solved until the root cause of the problem, which is the greed of European powers, is addressed. Morel presents a detailed account of the atrocities committed by European powers in Africa, such as forced labor, displacement of people, and destruction of African cultures. He also points out the hypocrisy of European powers, who claimed to be bringing civilization to Africa, while in reality, they were exploiting African resources for their own benefit. Through this book, Morel also emphasizes the need for a fair and just peace settlement after World War I, which takes into account the interests and rights of African nations. He believed that a just peace settlement would require the recognition of African nations as equal partners in the global community, and not as mere subjects of European powers. Overall, "The African Problem and the Peace Settlement" is an insightful and thought-provoking book that provides a critical analysis of European colonialism in Africa. It is relevant even today and is an important read for anyone interested in the history of colonialism and its lasting effects on African nations.
