About Book Book Description This was to be Stanley's last expedition to Africa. He was charged with rescuing Emin Pasha (Viceroy), who had been appointed a governor in the southern Sudan by the British, and had been forced to retreat to the Lake Albert (now northern Uganda) by the uprising led by an Islamic holy man.

        The maps these explorers created did add to what was known, but they also helped create the myth of the Dark Continent. The phrase itself was actually popularized by the explorer H. M. Stanley, who with an eye to boosting sales titled one of his accounts, Through the Dark Continent, and another, In Darkest Africa. In Darkest Africa: Or, The Quest, Rescue and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria, Volume 1 Presbyterian News Co, Henry Morton Stanley Chas. Scribner's Sons, - Africa, Central - .

        The book containing the map became a bestseller, reprinted 13 times and translated into multiple languages, influencing the spread of onion-domed churches across Europe in the 16th century.   The BBC’s Europe editor tells the tale of what he calls Europe’s darkest hour since the war. He makes no pretence at deep analysis or intellectual theorising.
