This review is from: The War is Dead, Long Live the War: Bosnia: the Reckoning (Hardcover)
This isn't always an easy read, either as a member of the human race or as a Briton whose government stood by in the face of clear evidence of slaughter until after the election of Blair who engaged in one of his less shameful foreign policy ventures. Vulliamy witnessed the unfurling of the ethnic 'cleansing' (read murder, rape and deportations) of the Bosniak population in Serbia and refused to stand aside as an impartial journalist. This book explores the consequences for some of the victims and the ways that some of them have been able to rebuild their lives, in the face of continuing hostility in Serbia and a general lack of interest in the rest of world. Occasional detours sometimes feel unnecessary, but the book should be considered essential reading.

Good comment apart from the fact the Serbian war of agression from 1992-1995 did not take place in Serbia, but in Bosnia.
