Books By Author Ryszard Kapuscinski

Other by Ryszard Kapuscinski Other, Paperback (September 2009)

Offers a look at the Western idea of the Other - the non-European or non-American. Looking at this concept through the lens of the author's own encounters in Africa, Asia and Latin America, this title traces how the West has understood the Other from classical times to colonialism, from the age of enlightenment to the postmodern global village.

I Wrote Stone by Ryszard Kapuscinski I Wrote Stone, Paperback (September 2008)

The best of Kapuscinski's published poems, offered for the first time in English.

Travels with Herodotus by Ryszard Kapuscinski Travels with Herodotus, Paperback (May 2008)

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).

Imperium by Ryszard Kapuscinski Imperium, Paperback (September 2007)

Features a report on the life and death of the Soviet superpower, from the entrance of Soviet troops into the author's hometown in Poland in 1939, through his journey across Siberia and the republics of Central Asia, to his wanderings over the vast Soviet lands in the years of the USSR's decline and disintegration in 1991.
