it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

One could not write a better book about the mosaic of cultures that were interwoven which helped to create and destroy the Imperium. It is both the strong hand of the Communist leader and the gentle guiding hand of the people they ruled that Kapuscinski observes in order to paint an amazing picture of an empire, which is at once beautiful and at the same time tragically sad.
