'Inescapable Questions' captures the life and thoughts of an extraordinary man, an individual's lone resistance at a time when the violence of the new world order mutated and then mutilated humanity's innocence. When the world was only just awakening to the new order that might is right, a part of Europe was already plunged into a conflict of primeval dimensions, where "ethnic cleansing", the linguistically ambivalent phrase conveniently used in popular reportage, became a byword that sanitized the horrors of war.
The author, Alija Izetbegovic, who died in October 2003, was a hero of the Muslim resistance during the bloody siege of Sarajevo. He led his country to independence from communist Yugoslavia. Onetime stepfather of Bosnia, Richard Holbrooke, heaped praise on the ailing Muslim leader Izetbegovic as someone Bosnia "could not have existed without."
He was a devout Muslim who fought for the emancipation of his people within a multi-ethnic state, but never realised his dream of a reunified Bosnia.
Izetbegovic long advocated a state in which ethnic Muslims, Croats and Serbs would fully enjoy their national and religious rights, denied in former communist Yugoslavia. However, the nationalist urges of the Serbian population shattered this dream.
