The Soccer War by Ryszard Kapuscinski

Kapuscinski has witnessed 27 revolutions and coups. This is his account of the revolutions he has seen, a chronicle of the Third World establishing its independence and coming into its own. The book consists of more than 20 set pieces - narrative accounts of the revolutions in Algeria, Namibia, in the Congo, the revolutions in Tanzania, Kenya, the soccer war between El Salvador and Honduras, the overthrow of Allende - connected by an account of all the business undergone to make the stories possible in the first place: dealings with the editor, having to return back home, the estrangement from the family, the irritation and boredom of being behind the desk, having to get an airplane ticket, having to get a visa, having to cross the border illegally, etc. This is a companion volume to "Lapidarium".
