Kapuscinski’s Other

kapuscinski1“The theme of the ‘Stranger’ or the ‘Other’ has obsessed and fascinated me for a very long time. In 1956 I made my first long journey outside Europe (to India, Pakistan and Afghanistan), and from that moment to the present day I have been concerned with Third World issues, and thus with Asia, Africa and Latin America (though the term ‘Third World’ could also cover a considerable part of Europe and Oceania). I have spent most of my professional life in these parts, travelling and writing about the local people and their affairs.” Ryszard Kapuscinski The Other is a collection of his lectures published by Verso in 2008.
