    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookRyszard Kapuscinski sits under the branchy shade of a solitary acacia and stares at the incommensurable moonlike landscape unfolding in front of him Plains covered with parched thorny shrubs and vast extensions of sandy ground seem ablaze in a shimmering haze that refracts on the journalist’s eyes forcing him to squint “Water and shade such fluid inconstant things and the two most valuable treasures in Africa” this half historian half journalist recalls while revisiting the thirty years he spent roaming the most recondite spots of this battered continent castigated both by man and the most hostile aspect of nature A place where its people are one with its arid terrain blinding light and spicy smells A place where the night belongs to myth and spirits where time stretches and melts without shape or tempo A place where history

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBook“The population of Africa was a gigantic matted crisscrossing web spanning the entire continent and in constant motion endlessly undulating bunching up in one place and spreading out in another a rich fabric a colourful arras” Ryszard Kapuscinski The Shadow of the SunA man I’d unfortunately never heard of wrote one of the most engaging historical reflections I've’ve ever read Ryszard Kapuscinski reported on African events for a Polish newspaper for over 40 years He was definitely in Africa at the right times during the fights for independence military coups and so on Kapuscinski placed events like the Rwandan genocide and the lesser known Burundian genocide that happened alongside it in their cultural and historical contextsThere were many surprises along the way the biggest shocker for me being the fact that the descendants of former slaves the Americo Liberians just about re enacted what they had been through in America when they settled in Liberia among the indi

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookGoodreads changed my experience with this book For much of the time I was reading it I was mesmerized by the writing flabbergasted by some of the information about Africa and convinced I was encountering the continent in a nuanced and subtle and authentic manner I planned to give a copy to my husband for his birthday and to recommend it to my book group Curious about what other readers thought I looked at some of the almost 500 reviews of it on goodreads and it was there that I came across one reader's reference to John Ryle's 2001 review of the book in the Times Literary Supplement httpwwwrichardwebsternetjohnrylehtml Persuasive and beautifully crafted that review points out numerous errors of fact within Shadow of the Sun errors that Ryle argues betray Kapuściński to be mythmaker than journalist Apparently some readers have argued that some of his errors don't matter To me they do When Kapuściński tells us for instance that the only bookstore in all of Ethiopia i

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookA book like this would normally I would have imagined taken me very little time to read because I would devour it in a binge of gulpings and swallowings but it took me a good deal longer In part for the simple reason that I was taken up with other things and couldn't find the freedom to absorb myself in his world as I would have liked but also for the equally simple but at the same time profound reason that there was just too much to take inI listed it as epistolary and though it is not officially so it reads like a series of letters across a long career working in the continent of Africa as it breaks free of colonialism and steps onwards into independence Sometimes this takes him on a positive journey but far too often it brings him into contact with the dark horror or vicious oppression and poverty Years ago i read Thomas Eidson's novel ' St Agnes' stand' in which

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookKapuściński was a Polish journalist who died in 2007 and who spent time in Africa between the late 1950ies and the 1990ies Africa was not his only beat but when he spent time there he spent time with the people and shared their lives when he could He was the first Polish foreign correspondent to cover Africa and he was always seriously underfunded compared with those representing the big European and American publications and agencies What he lacked in funds he made up in ingenuity and a willingness to share in the lives of Africans with the result that he got the big stories a coup in Zanzibar is the subject of one piece but also the stories about the little people He went to visit friends in remote villages where there wasn't enough to eat He traveled in war zones He met the dictators and sadists who were independent Africa's first rulers Once traveling with Greek correspondent in the region of Lake Victoria he took refuge in a hut where he collapsed ex

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookKapuściński first went to Africa in 1957 and over the next forty years returned whenever he could He says ‘I travelled extensively avoiding official routes palaces important personages and high level politics Instead I opted to hitch rides on passing trucks wander with nomads through the desert be the guest of peasants of the tropical savannah Their life is endless toil a torment they endure with astonishing patience and good humor‘This is therefore not a book about Africa but rather about some people from there –about encounters with them and time spent together’From Ghana to Guinea Angola to Addis Abababa he observed analysed and wrote I'm reading a biography of him now and the reports of his early years would have been infused with socialist zeal for the causes of African nationalism emerging from colonialism As well as immediate reports of events wars revolutions coups he wrote longer reports that analysed the background political social

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookShifting seamlessly from vignettes of daily life to grand excursions into Africa's turbulent political past Kapuscinski zig zags across vast expanses of scorching desert and lush greenery in this masterful piece of journalistic travel writing He describes people politics and landscape with equal ease The lioness stalking in the tall grasses is as riveting as the utterly fascinating character study of Idi AminThe first chapter was studded with generalisations about Africa and Africans that made my inner anthropologist cringe and is the main reason I am docking this book one star I am pleased to note that he dropped the act soon afterward to delve into the swirling mass of stories he painstakingly picked from his decades of experience on the continent He breathes in the poverty around him its raw smells its despairing lang

    Paperback Ò Heban PDF/EPUB í heban pdf, Heban eBookRyszard Kapuscinski was the foreign correspondent par excellence someone who could simultaneously travel rough report the story appreciate and approach the local people on their own terms and weave his experiences into a narrative of uncommon breadth and intelligence And it's even impressive when you realize he's covering Africa for the presumably shoestring Polish communist press Books like these up the ante for book length journalism and show what an absolute shit job the puppets ensconced in the Times and the Post are doing
