Ryszard Kapuscinski has always displayed an aptitude for being in the right place at the right time. During his career as a foreign correspondent, he has witnessed 27 revolutions and coups. This is an account of the journey he undertook in 1989 across the vast territories of the Soviet Union, on the eve of the collapse of the great Russian Empire. He visited 15 republics, recording the views of hundreds of ordinary Soviet citizens as they voiced their hopes and fears.

Review:

'Kapuscinski's writing has achieved the status of literature.' Daily Telegraph -'The most passionate, engaging and historically profound account of the Soviet empire that I have read.' Michael Ignatieff -'Russia was a real threat which hung over the early part of Kapuscinski's life. It is hardly surprising that he understands Russia better, and writes about the country with greater clarity and beauty, than those who know Russia only as an abstraction.' Spectator

About the Author:
