My opinion of this book after only 20 pages was that it was horrible Having completed it that initial opinion is wholly confirmedThe author is imperialistic and definitely has a colonial outlook especially as it regards Western Sahara He fails to ever look at himself or his own Western culture never turning his microscope onto his own preconceptions sympathies and nationalism He never uestions how symbols are used by the guerillas and their followers nor does he ever look outside these communities in order to see how they fit in navigate and struggle against the larger contextHe describes the people who are guerillas as almost without the ability to think for themselves If they are supporters they are portrayed as either megalomaniacal leaders or manipulated puppets He tries to correctly point out some techniues that are ideological indoctrination but his overall approach is to diminish or eliminate the humanity and agency of the populationFurther he writes fluid and beautiful prose to describe the landscape how the sand dunes meet the sky the sun etc But when describing people especially the common bystander he dredges up racist and condescending language I feel like he s describing his day at the zoo only the exhibits are filled with human beings and the author can t see that only a sensationalized story to tell his friends the next day at the water coolerHe guesses at people s opinions rather than asking them what they re thinking He rarely uses uotes from his informants Granted the author does not bill this as an ethnographic piece But he and his reviewers call it reporting That s true only in the vein of scandal sheets and racist propaganda posters He does a disservice to those he writes about and to all reportersWords like condescension arrogance and colonialism ring through my head as I read this book A famed writer with the New Yorker I d expect fine writing deep research wit and indeed a little arrogance Sadly all I found was the last and in much greater uantity than I ever expected Jon Lee Anderson needs to take a refresher course in journalism and he should consider a few cultural anthropology courses to boot The Painter regards Western Sahara He fails to ever look at himself or his own Western culture never turning his microscope onto his own preconceptions sympathies and nationalism He never uestions how symbols are used by the guerillas and their followers nor does he ever look outside these communities in order to see how they fit in navigate and struggle against the larger contextHe describes the people who are guerillas as almost without the ability to think for themselves If they are supporters they are portrayed as either megalomaniacal leaders or manipulated puppets He tries to correctly point out some techniues that are ideological indoctrination but his overall approach is to diminish or eliminate the humanity and agency of the populationFurther he writes fluid and beautiful prose to describe the landscape how the sand dunes meet the sky the sun etc But when describing people especially the common bystander he dredges up یزید racist and condescending language I feel like he s describing his day at the zoo only the exhibits are filled with human beings and the author can t see that only a sensationalized story to tell his friends the next day at the water coolerHe guesses at people s opinions Berlin FeuerlandRoman eines Aufstands rather than asking them what they The Year's Best Horror Stories 15 re thinking He The Year's Best Horror Stories 15 rarely uses uotes from his informants Granted the author does not bill this as an ethnographic piece But he and his Hottest Mess reviewers call it Hottest Mess reporting That s true only in the vein of scandal sheets and Hitler racist propaganda posters He does a disservice to those he writes about and to all Hidden reportersWords like condescension arrogance and colonialism Luther ring through my head as I Im Augenblick des Todes Severin Boesherz #2 read this book A famed writer with the New Yorker I d expect fine writing deep Historic Ghosts and Ghost Hunters refresher course in journalism and he should consider a few cultural anthropology courses to boot
