The other by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

33 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ryszard Kapuscinski witnessed and reported on major wars, coups and revolutions as they happened throughout the developing world and global South. In this distillation of his reflections on a lifetime of travel, he takes a fresh look at the Western idea of the Other: the non-European or non-American. Looking at this concept through the lens of his own encounters in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and considering its formative significance for his own work, Kapuciski traces how the West has understood the Other from classical times to colonialism, from the age of enlightenment to the postmodern global village. He observes how today we continue to treat the non-European as an alien and a threat, an object of study that has not yet become a partner in sharing responsibility for the fate of the world. In our globalized but increasingly polarized post-9/11 age, Kapuscinski shows how the Other remains one of the most compelling ideas of our times

25 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viaggiatore curioso e acuto, Kapuscinski si cala nel continente africano e se ne lascia sommergere, rifuggendo tappe obbligate, stereotipi e luoghi comuni. Abita nelle case dei sobborghi più poveri, brulicanti di scarafaggi e schiacciate dal caldo, si ammala di tubercolosi e si fa curare negli ambulatori locali; rischia la morte per mano di un guerrigliero; ha paura e si dispera. Ma non rinuncia mai allo sguardo lucido e penetrante del reporter, all'affabulazione del narratore: che parlino di Amin Dada o della tragedia del Ruanda, di una giornata in un villaggio o della città di Lalibela, tassello dopo tassello le pagine di Ebola compongono il mosaico di un mondo carico di un'inquieta e violenta elettricità
Los cínicos no sirven para este oficio : sobre el buen periodismo by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

27 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es un error escribir sobre alguien con quien no se ha compartido al menos un tramo de la vida.» Es uno de los temas centrales de Los cínicos no sirven para este oficio, un libro «conversado» sobre el trabajo del periodista, sobre sus dificultades y sus reglas, sobre la responsabilidad de los intelectuales que, hoy en día, se dedican a la información. ¿Cómo contar la pobreza, el hambre, las guerras? ¿Es imprescindible tener motivaciones éticas para ser un buen periodista? ¿Qué relación existe entre realidad y narración? ¿Cómo moverse entre la investigación de la verdad y los condicionamientos del poder? El libro incluye una entrevista de A. Semplici con el escritor acerca de los acontecimientos que llevaron a la emancipación de África del dominio colonial, y un diálogo con el narrador y crítico de arte John Berger sobre el «ver, comprender y contar»
