    Great historical book describing the mood of the palace in Ethiopia under the rule of Haile Selassie Excellent in its description of mood You actually see the insanity and chaos that Selassie created and nurtured in his palace and metaphorically throughout his country And by the end of the book you understand how the King

    A little lesson in the blurred lines between reportage and fiction a detailed account of the fall of Haile Sellasie given by the ministers and servants who once waited upon him Not of course that you'd ever believe these are direct transcriptions of interviews or that Kapuscinski hasn't modified and tailored these accounts as he sees fit unless you believe all of the ministers speak in an identical fantastical ironical language I suppose if

    This book was a gift to me from a friend who is a former Guardian journalist During the Communist era Ryszard Kapuściński was foreign correspondent for the Polish Press Agency and reported on civil wars and revolutions from all over the Third World The introduction by Neal Ascherson reveals that after reporting on the coup of 1974 that destroyed the Abyssinian Empire Kapuściński was approached by his publishers to write a book on it but

    My favorite books by Kapuscinski are those where the author travels and explains for the world what other peoples feel This is just an original biography It has been contested in its accuracy The protagonist Haile

Ry The New York Review of Books is Kapuscinski's rendition of their accounts humorous frightening sad grotesue of a man living amidst nearly unimaginable pomp and luxury while his people teetered between hunger and starvatio. A little lesson in the blurred lines between reportage and fiction a detailed account of the fall of Haile Sellasie given by the ministers and servants who once waited upon him Not of course that you d ever believe these are direct transcriptions of interviews or that Kapuscinski hasn t modified and tailored these accounts as he sees fit unless you believe all of the ministers speak in an identical fantastical ironical language I suppose if you have narrow ideas of what constitutes nonfiction you might find this sort of thing offensive but if you ve already signed on to the concept that monkeying with the truth a little is the soul of all narrative fictional or otherwise it s easy to give yourself over to the story provided here Of particular note are the amazing accounts of Sellasie s court pre disillusion and the accounts of the men who propped up the emperor s legs on account of him being short in stature and therefore believed that they were personally responsible for supporting the empire Really though every sentence here is a winner and the level of irony is so delicious it s difficult not to try and extend your lunch break to finish each section Also according to those in the know a winking satire of Communist bureaucratic wrangling Also according to others who are also in the know but don t agree with the first people in the know written as a Marxist propaganda tract to expose the futility of Western sponsored capitalist schemes However will we discern the truth But from my resolutely non partisan perspective a grand old time indeed

Summary Cesarz Author Ryszard Kapuściński

Cesarz Author Ryszard Kapuściński

Haile Selassie King of Kings Elect of God Lion of Judah His Most Puissant Majesty and Distinguished Highness the Emperor of Ethiopia reigned from 1930 until he was overthrown by the army in 1974 While the fighting still rage. A 35 star rating perhaps This book contains accounts from those close to Ethiopia s last emperor Haile Selassie It chronicles Selassie s opulent lifestyle and his subseuent downfall It speaks to the undoing of African leaders I ve always been intrigued by Selassie and was interested to know about himThe Emperor is a very dramatic account of Selassie s and I did get a slightly clearer idea of who Selassie was He was very progressive in many ways and he was uite eccentric as well Overall he was painted as uite the despot in this book something I d never really heard been said about himKapuscinski managed to interview those close to the emperor albeit anonymously and put their thoughts into this book However the accounts sounded a bit too fictional to me That s not necessarily bad but I was looking for something substantial and something that didn t sound so one sidedI also felt that the book didn t have a logical start I expected everything to go chronologically from start to finish Perhaps this is my own error for having a wrong idea about what this book was trying to doIn my opinion Kapuscinski is better suited to write short anecdotes and make anthropological observations while on his reporting assignments I d really enjoyed Kapuscinski s last book The Shadow of the Sun and had thought this would be just as enjoyable I feel that someone like Emperor Selassie and roads are named after him all around Africa after all is deserving of a factual in depth properly documented account I wanted to know why he is so revered in the Rastafarian community for example but this account didn t go into thatThis book whetted my appetite for learning about Selassie and Ethiopia It was hard for me to accept the content as the Ethiopian people I know speak highly of Selassie So many uestions not enough answers

D Ryszard Kapuscinski Poland's leading foreign correspondent traveled to Ethiopia to seek out and interview Selassie's servants and closest associates on how the Emperor had ruled and why he fell This sensitive powerfulhisto. From the waning Gomulka regime forward Kapuscinski fashioned a journalistic career out of exceedingly subtle swipes at the pretenses and tragicomic self deception of Soviet style Communism The Emperor is aimed at Haile Selassie who Kapuscinski paints as a vapid self important ignoramusHow much of this is actually Selassie and how much is carefully picked in order to make fun of Stalin or Khrushchev or even Gomulka is up for debate but that s exactly what makes this book a masterpiece I can t think of a bitter catalog of the pathologies that accompany political power and by the end it doesn t matter all that much who s in the limo surrounded by uislings and sycophants One of the mysteries of this book is whether dictators like Selassie come into being due to good timing canny manipulation or people s gullible belief that they can change their own nature Kapuscinski refuses to take sides on the uestion of which comes first the Hitler or the Reich he s of a muralist than a satirist which is part of what makes The Emperor so satisfying I can t recommend this book highly enough
