From the Publisher
From the renowned journalist comes this intimate account of his
years in the field, traveling for the first time beyond the Iron
Curtain to India, China, Ethiopia, and other exotic locales.
In the 1950s, Ryszard Kapuscinski finished university in Poland and
became a foreign correspondent, hoping to go abroad - perhaps to
Czechoslovakia. Instead, he was sent to India - the first stop on a
decades-long tour of the world that took Kapuscinski from Iran to
El Salvador, from Angola to Armenia. Revisiting his memories of
traveling the globe with a copy of Herodotus'' Histories
in tow, Kapuscinski describes his awakening to the intricacies and
idiosyncrasies of new environments, and how the words of the Greek
historiographer helped shape his own view of an increasingly
globalized world. Written with supreme eloquence and a constant eye
to the global undercurrents that have shaped the last half-century,
Travels with Herodotus is an exceptional chronicle of one
man''s journey across continents.
