"Kapuscinski arrived in Africa in 1957, at the beginning of the end of colonial rule.

Travels with Herodotus by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

"Ryszard Kapuscinski was the greatest traveler-reporter of our time.?Travels with Herodotus? depicts his beginnings as an inexperienced young Polish journalist and reveals what drove him throughout his extraordinary life. At every encounter with a new culture? whether Indian, Chinese or African? he plunges in, curious and observant, thirsting to understand its history and its people."? Back cover
Imperium by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing the book to a close is a collection of notes which, Kapuscinski writes, "arose in the margins of my journeys"--Reflections on the state of the ex-USSR and on his experience of having watched its fate unfold "on the screen of a television set ... as well as on the screen of the country's ordinary, daily reality, which surrounded me during my travels." It is this "schizophrenic perception in two different dimensions" that enabled Kapuscinski to discover and illuminate the most telling features of a society in dire turmoil. Imperium is a remarkable work from one of the most original and sharply perceptive interpreters of our world - a galvanizing narrative deeply informed by Kapuscinski's limitless curiosity and his passion for truth, and suffused with his vivid sense of the overwhelming importance of history as it is lived, and of our constantly shifting places within it

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Kapuscinski has been writing about Africa since 1957, when one country after another declared independence from the European colonial powers - powers who had "crammed the approximately ten thousand kingdoms, federations, and stateless but independent tribal associations that existed on this continent in the middle of the nineteenth century within the borders of barely forty colonies." When independence came, optimism soon disintegrated into corruption, poverty, and conflict. Some descriptions of sex, descriptions of violence, and some strong language. 2001
