The Shadow of the Sun: My African Life - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0140292624

[SR: 44986], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780140292626], Penguin, Penguin, Book, [PU: Penguin], Penguin, The Shadow of the Sun Creates an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. This book gives a sustained meditation on themosaic of peoples and practices we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination. Full description, When Africa makes international news, it is usually because war has broken out or some bizarre natural disaster has taken a large number of lives. Westerners are appallingly ignorant of Africa otherwise, a condition that the great Polish journalist and writer Ryszard Kapuœciñski helps remedy with this book based on observations gathered over more than four decades. Kapuœciñski first went to Africa in 1957, a time pregnant with possibilities as one country after another declared independence from the European colonial powers. Those powers, he writes, 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, old interethnic rivalries, long suppressed, bubbled up to the surface, and the continent was consumed in little wars of obscure origin, from caste-based massacres in Rwanda and ideological conflicts in Ethiopia to hit-and-run skirmishes among Tuaregs and Bantus on the edge of the Sahara. With independence, too, came the warlords, whose power across the continent derives from the control of food, water, and other life-and-death resources, and whose struggles among one another fuel the continent's seemingly endless civil wars. When the warlords "decide that everything worthy of plunder has been extracted," Kapuœciñski writes, wearily, they call a peace conference and are rewarded with credits and loans from the First World, which makes them richer and more powerful than ever, "because you can get significantly more from the World Bank than from your own starving kinsmen." Constantly surprising and eye-opening, Kapuœciñski's book teaches us much about contemporary events and recent history in Africa. It is also further evidence for why he is considered to be one of the best journalists at work today. --Gregory, 65141011, Afrika, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 69077011, Politik, 69106011, Aktivismus, 1321875031, Arbeitsverhältnisse, 1321874031, Frieden & Sicherheit, 69091011, Führung, 69079011, Geschichte & Theorie, 69090011, Gewerkschaften, 69098011, Globalisierung, 69080011, Ideologien, 69083011, International, 69105011, Lobbying, 69107011, Menschenrechte, 1321876031, Nachschlagewerke, 69097011, Politik der USA, 69092011, Politische Parteien, 1321877031, Raumordnung, 69093011, Realpolitik, 69096011, Soziale Sicherheit, 69028011, Sachbücher, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 58645011, Reise & Abenteuer, 58646011, Afrika, 58683011, Asien, 54131011, Atlanten & Karten, 58746011, Australien & Südpazifik, 58807011, Europa, 58763011, Kanada, 58787011, Karibik, 59021011, Latein- & Südamerika, 1327145031, Nachfolgestaaten der Sowietunion, 1320016031, Naher Osten, 59068011, Polarregionen, 58931011, Ratgeber & Tipps, 59071011, Spezialreisen, 59084011, USA, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

The Shadow of the Sun: My African Life - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9780140292626

ID: 11334112

A moving portrait of Africa from Poland's most celebrated foreign correspondent - a masterpiece from a modern master. Famous for being in the wrong places at just the right times, Ryszard Kapuscinski arrived in Africa in 1957, at the beginning of the end of colonial rule - the "sometimes dramatic and painful, sometimes enjoyable and jubilant" rebirth of a continent. "The Shadow of the Sun" sums up the author's experiences ("the record of a 40-year marriage") in this place that became the central obsession of his remarkable career. From the hopeful years of independence through the bloody disintegration of places like Nigeria, Rwanda and Angola, Kapuscinski recounts great social and political changes through the prism of the ordinary African. He examines the rough-and-ready physical world and identifies the true geography of Africa: a little-understood spiritual universe, an African way of being. He looks also at Africa in the wake of two epoch-making changes: the arrival of AIDS and the definitive departure of the white man. Kapuscinski's rare humanity invests his subjects with a grandeur and a dignity unmatched by any other writer on the Third World, and his unique ability to discern the universal in the particular has never been more powerfully displayed than in this work.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In astudy that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on themosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft.
