Reviews Of The Book
Richard Ziegler has written an important, insightful and absorbing book that explains why the political left was so hostile to the Bosnian Serbs. The book deserves to be read by people on the left and on the right.

As a minority view these days, Richard Ziegler's book, grounded in the historical context of both the Balkans and the Middle East, is an antidote to much of the literature dealing with the conflicts in these regions.

A component of the left is obsessed with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and regards the Israelis only as guilty aggressors and the Palestinians only as innocent victims. Richard Ziegler's fine book explains how a section of the left developed this black and white perspective, and why it is untenable.
