Imperium by Ryszard Kapuscinski
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


During the year the Berlin Wall came down, as the empire convulsed and died, Kapuscinski talked to hundreds of ordinary people about their extraordinary lives and the terror from which they were emerging. Imperium is a race to capture people's memories, and their fears for the future, before the wonderful, terrible events of 1989 receded into the past.
