The other by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

31 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ryszard Kapuscinski witnessed and reported on major wars, coups and revolutions as they happened throughout the developing world and global South. In this distillation of his reflections on a lifetime of travel, he takes a fresh look at the Western idea of the Other: the non-European or non-American. 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, Kapuciski traces how the West has understood the Other from classical times to colonialism, from the age of enlightenment to the postmodern global village. He observes how today we continue to treat the non-European as an alien and a threat, an object of study that has not yet become a partner in sharing responsibility for the fate of the world. In our globalized but increasingly polarized post-9/11 age, Kapuscinski shows how the Other remains one of the most compelling ideas of our times

Ebano by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

102 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viaggiatore curioso e acuto, Kapuscinski si cala nel continente africano e se ne lascia sommergere, rifuggendo tappe obbligate, stereotipi e luoghi comuni. Abita nelle case dei sobborghi più poveri, brulicanti di scarafaggi e schiacciate dal caldo, si ammala di tubercolosi e si fa curare negli ambulatori locali; rischia la morte per mano di un guerrigliero; ha paura e si dispera. Ma non rinuncia mai allo sguardo lucido e penetrante del reporter, all'affabulazione del narratore: che parlino di Amin Dada o della tragedia del Ruanda, di una giornata in un villaggio o della città di Lalibela, tassello dopo tassello le pagine di Ebola compongono il mosaico di un mondo carico di un'inquieta e violenta elettricità

By the time he returned to Poland he had witnessed twenty-seven revolutions and coups and been sentenced to death four times. The Soccer War is Kapuscinski's story, his eyewitness account of the emergence of the Third World

Autoportret reportera by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

28 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in Polish and French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mort en 2007 à près de soixante-quinze ans, Ryszard Kapuscinski appartient à la catégorie des grands reporters, ceux qui. par leur travail, ont acquis la reconnaissance quasi unanime de leurs pairs. Tout au long de sa carrière, il s'est exprimé sur le métier de reporter, son éthique, sa mission, mais aussi sur l'indépendance de la presse, l'objectivité du journaliste, le pouvoir de la télévision, les nouveaux réseaux d'information, les effets pervers de la course à l'information... Autoportrait d'un reporter, dont le présent volume offre de larges extraits, réunit ses interventions. Plus qu'un témoignage, l'oeuvre est une réflexion passionnante sur la pratique du journalisme et le rôle de l'information. Un livre "diablement stimulant" (Pierre Assouline). []

Chrystus z karabinem na ramieniu by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

29 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En la primera edición polaca de este libro, aparecida en 1975, decía el propio autor: Poco después de la muerte del Che Guevara, el pintor revolucionario argentino Carlos Alonso pintó un cuadro que inmediatamente se hizo famoso en toda América Latina, una figura de Cristo con un fusil al hombro. El cuadro de Alonso se ha convertido desde entonces en el símbolo artístico del guerrillero, del hombre que combate la violencia y la arbitrariedad en su lucha por un mundo diferente, justo y bueno con todos los seres humanos. En rigor, no fue Ernesto Guevara sino el sacerdote Camilo Torres, abatido a tiros arma en mano, quien había hecho de prototipo de la figura de Cristo con un fusil. Pero sólo la muerte del Che dio comienzo a la leyenda que inspiró a los jóvenes rebeldes de los países del Sur, desangrados por unos regímenes atroces y genocidas. Precisamente a ellos, a los que lucharon por la libertad de sus países y congéneres ?ya en Oriente Medio, ya en América Latina, ya en Mozambique?, están dedicados los reportajes reunidos en este volumen
Los cínicos no sirven para este oficio : sobre el buen periodismo by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in Spanish and Italian and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es un error escribir sobre alguien con quien no se ha compartido al menos un tramo de la vida. Es uno de los temas centrales de Los cínicos no sirven para este oficio, un libro "conversado" sobre el trabajo del periodista, sobre sus dificultades y sus reglas, sobre la responsabilidad de los intelectuales que, hoy en día, se dedican a la información. ¿Cómo contar la pobreza, el hambre, las guerras? ¿Es imprescindible tener motivaciones éticas para ser un buen periodista? ¿Qué relación existe entre realidad y narración? ¿Cómo moverse entre la investigación de la verdad y los condicionamientos del poder? El libro incluye una entrevista de A. Semplici con el escritor acerca de los acontecimientos que llevaron a la emancipación de África del dominio colonial, y un diálogo con el narrador y crítico de arte John Berger sobre el "ver, comprender y contar."

Autoritratto di un reporter by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in Italian and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Da un materiale di migliaia di pagine e di oltre cento conversazioni, è stata ricavata una scelta, distribuita tematicamente in varie sezioni: le origini di Kapuscinski, le ragioni che lo hanno portato a scegliere la professione di reporter, il suo approccio alla materia, la sua visione del mestiere, il modo di scrivere, gli stili adottati, le tematiche dei singoli libri, la profonda trasformazione del mestiere di reporter rispetto all'epoca in cui non imperversavano i media. Questo libro è un'occasione per comprendere i ferri del mestiere di un grande reporter e il modo di adoperarli sia dal punto di vista tecnico che morale. Per conoscere la profonda etica umana e ontologica di un uomo cresciuto nella miseria più nera che nel suo lavoro mette al primo posto la comprensione e il rispetto per le sofferenze degli altri. Dietro alla professionalità di Kapuscinski sta infatti qualcosa di molto speciale, di mite e nello stesso tempo durissimo: la vocazione
