Other by Ryszard Kapuscinski
Book DescriptionIn this distillation of his reflections accumulated from a lifetime of travel, Ryszard Kapuscinski takes a fresh look at the Western idea of the Other. 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, Kapuscinski traces how the West has understood the non-European from classical times to the present day. He observes how in the twenty-first century we continue to treat the residents of the Global South as hostile aliens, objects of study rather than full partners sharing responsibility for the fate of humankind. In our globalised but increasingly polarized world, Kapuscinski shows how the Other remains one of the most compelling ideas of our times.

Offers a look at the Western idea of the Other - the non-European or non-American.

Records how the author set out on his first forays to India, China and Africa with the great Greek historian constantly in his pocket. The author sees Louis Armstrong in Khartoum, visits Dar-es-Salaam, arrives in Algiers in time for a coup when nothing seems to happen (but he sees the Mediterranean for the first time).
