Cecil Rhodes: Man and Empire-Maker by Princess Catherine Radziwill (FIRST EDITION, 1918)
 
A book written about the life and time of Cecil John Rhodes by a woman whom Rhodes called his nemesis and who most probably hastened his early death, apart from tarnishing his image.
 
 (The Polish princess Catherine Radziwill does not mention in her book the facts that she was reported to have falsely claimed that she was engaged to Rhodes, or that they were having an affair and that she asked him to marry her, but Rhodes refused. Radziwill wrote letters in Rhodes' name, hassled him consistently, forged his name on documents for financial gain and engaged in other such activities in an attempt to promote her ideas for the empire. Eventually, she was sent to prison, but not before bringing scandal to Rhodes' name).
