Der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Schwarzen. Die Reise den Fluss entlang entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes unbewusstes Inneres. Marlow trifft auf den berühmt-berüchtigten und angeblich besonders erfolgreichen Elfenbein-Agenten Kurtz. Kurtz hat auf seinem Handelsposten, von der Handelsgesellschaft als "leuchtfeuer auf der Straße zum Besseren" beabsichtigt, ein Zentrum des Bösen und eine machtvolle Position etabliert. Vermeintlich unter dem schädlichen Einfluss der Wildnis hat er sich den in ihm selber existierenden Verrohungstendenzen hingegeben und geht darin unter. Marlow verfälscht seine letzten Worte ("das Grauen! Das Grauen!"), um sie Kurtz' Braut als letzten Gruß zu überbringen.

Der Pirat und das Recht

Lange bevor es eine Charta der Menschenrechte und humanitäre Organisationen gab, definierten die Römer den Piraten als »Feind aller«, da ihm nicht mit dem üblichen Recht beizukommen war: Er ist kein Bürger eines Staates, er bewegt sich auf offener See, die niemandem gehört und wo keine Gesetze gelten, man kann nicht mit ihm verhandeln und er ist nicht mit einem Krieg zu besiegen. Bis heute stellt er eine immense Herausforderung an das Recht und die Politik dar. In seiner brillanten Studie zeichnet Daniel Heller-Roazen die Genealogie dieser Herausforderung von der Antike bis heute nach. Mit leichter, eleganter Hand beschreibt er, wie und warum der Pirat aus allen territorialen, politischen, kriegerischen und rechtlichen Kategorien herausfällt und wie er zu der zentralen zeitgenössischen Figur hat werden können, als die wir ihn heute erleben.
