“Goonetilleke’s edition does much to restore the context [in which Conrad was writing] and begins with a helpful summary of Congo history. The edition contains excerpts from some of the best writers in English on conditions in the Congo Free State.” — The Times Literary Supplement
“This edition offers a bold and intelligent introduction to the book’s aesthetic and philosophical challenges, gives an excitingly useful chronology of the Congo with excerpts from Congo exploration literature, and deftly anticipates issues that discussion of the text will raise.” — David Leon Higdon, Conradiana
“Evenhanded … it connects Conrad palpably to the European colonization of the continent.” — Harper’s Magazine
“[This edition is] far better than anything else on the market today.” — Craig Keating, Langara College
