The Emperor baffles any ready description A Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski renders an account of the last schizophrenic years of Ethiopia s ancient kingdom and the demise of it emperor whose ways are not our ways to say the least Reviews may not suffice to say exactly why or how the book works but I ll add mine anyway to the others that have noted its mystiue The book s structure takes a straightforward path The author interviews courtiers associates and servants of the Emperor Haile Selassie in the months just after his dethronement Selassie s reign is recounted in parts each starting with Kapuscinski s observations about the situation at hand followed by comments from the relevant courtiers to furnish color detail and insight The tapestry woven from these remarks and the writer s added observations depict an esoteric mindset I ve often wondered When humans left their tribes to create the world s first civilizations what were those societies like I don t mean the art they created or the decrees of their leaders I mean did the people think and act like us The fabric of the story gives us that answer for Ethiopia was just such a place And the answer is a mind boggling no What we find is a land so ancient it s not even medieval a place where even feudalism would represent progress But make no mistake it is still a fully developed civilization not some savage prehistoric amalgam Kapuscinski knows he has stumbled into something uniue a culture whose primeval foundation neither lends nor refuses itself to any obvious interpretation In this emperor this court and this society a primordial human drama demands its stage Such a provenance makes conclusions or judgments about Ethiopia impossible to categorize The declivities of class and hierarchy within this kingdom exceed anything known to man An antediluvian social stucture showcases the raw exercise of power at its stripped down worst absent any modern guile By design mediocrity trumps merit as a tool to balance power and maintain social order turning the country into a kind of Ayn Rand novel come to life Such an order inevitably clashes with the outside But decisive are the its own internal contradictionsThe several speakers whose contributions build the story relate the details with elegance In these vignettes lie much of the book s narrative power the interviewees tell what they know with a delicate economy that page per page conveys detail plot and feeling than any book I can recall Here s one such description of the increasingly opaue autocracy People seemed unable to control things things existed and ceased to exist in their own malicious ways slipping through people s hands Everyone felt helpless before the seemingly magic force by which things autonomously appeared and disappeared and nobody knew how to master or break that force This speaker later accentuates the dissipation gripping Selassie s final decade Even conversation deteriorated losing its vigor and momentum Conversations started but somehow never seemed to be completed They always reached an invisible but perceptible point beyond which silence fell The silence said Everything is already known and clear but clear in an obscure way known unfathomably dominating by being beyond helping Having confirmed this truth by a moment of silence the conversation changed its direction and moved on to a different subject a trivial second rate second hand subject The elliptical way the speakers tell their stories adds to the book s kaleidoscopic dazzle Their many points of view make truth a perspectival uest No immediate verdict emerges upon the rule of Ethiopia s last emperor his sycophants both attack and defend his rule and they re right in each case Yet all the while the reader can detect a bigger picture getting lost in the details Under Kapuscinski s journalistic guidance the gripping reality of this society emerges to recruit one s sense of the grotesue This regime outclasses modern ones in some ways No violent purges or collective bloodbaths ever occur But the extremes of hierarchy leave the tragic fates of the many to deface a benighted landKapuscinski tells an amazing story amazingly and his journalist s sense of having discovered an unprecedented subject is dead on right The writing speaks for itself Its object is uniue The story is a spellbinding discovery The Emperor in short has all the ualities of a perfect book You cannot go wrong choosing it to read Pieces 8 Pieces #8 ruled and why he fell This sensitive powerfulhisto.

review Cesarz author Ryszard Kapuściński read & download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB â Ryszard Kapuściński Ryszard Kapuściński â 3 summary 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. By the Conuering Lion of the Tribe of Judah His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I King of Kings Lord of Lords Elect of God A sovereign a direct descendant from the ueen of Sheba and the King Salomon of Israel by law decree that isNo wonder such title comes with almighty power The Bible isn t very exact on the homeland of said ueen and noting that Solomon allegedly had 700 wives and 300 concubines there would be offspring literally everywhereBut it fits well into the narrative of an old kingdom to trace it s lineage even longer back and why not use a Biblical reference for the occasion after all the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church has existed since the middle of the fourth century thus giving a blessing to everything that would render a holy shine on the kingdom So The Emperor isn t just anybody What do you do with such powerThere are many views and many sources some reliable than others HS liked progress cars airplanes and to the degree that it didn t interfere with state interests also education One of the mantras was You must Develop but the development stopped right outside the palace and Ethiopia remained largely a feudal state where aristocracy and local notabilities got the better partThere are schools but the literacy rate is well below 20% and there are hospitals though you would have to prepare yourself well in advance should you need oneAnd of course there is a constitutionThe rich are getting richer and the poor going nowhere except to die from starvationThat is unless you have connections Someone who knows someone in the palace someone you might do a favor and get a little in returnYou would assume this was the chance of a lifetime but ministers and secretaries were replaced at such speed that you should play your cards extremely well to stay on the favored list Everyone informs on each other and reports back to The Emperor to display loyalty and to remain in favor and The Emperor listens nods and takes mental notes All along you get the impression that HS really didn t care about others as long as the fanbase was at a steady level and showing the splendor of The King of Kings contributed to thisBeing seen in the admiring company of foreign heads of states giving banuets and throwing the remains to the poor poor because they are lazy and presenting fireworks to the people out of grandness and goodwill all looks like the final days of the Roman Empire And it is the final days The interviews with palace officials ranking from the purse bearer to the pillow bearer and upwards mostly show a public accepting fate and adoring The King of Kings a godly creature as infallible as The Holy Pope a man who could do no wrongOnly in the aftermath when the interviews took place some show just a little doubt and humbly suggests that if just His Venerable Highness though he only stood 5 feet 2 had been told by someone he would have set everything right The issue of course is that HS very well knew and had absolutely no intention of doing anything that would prove him less infallible hence the many changes in the abundance of ministries always have a scapegoat ready Was HS an evil dictator Maybe at least he chose with open eyes to enroll in the ranks of the privilege blind and never showed any regrets
