What Michael Herr's Dispatches was to the Vietnam War, Love Thy Neighbor is to the Bosnian War--a brilliantly observed and deeply felt evocation of war by a writer who witnessed it. The work immediately calls to mind Heller's Catch-22 for its grasp of the absurdity of war, and, for its accurate presentation of the events, Neil Sheehan's A Bright, Shining Lie.

Peter Maass from the center of the nightmare in Bosnia, a war correspondent's montage of images - eerie, grotesque, ironic, angry, absurd. A Serb and Muslim, friends before the war, exchanging gossip via shortwave radio hours before they will try to kill each other. The Serbian president coolly denying reports of atrocities that have been witnessed by hundreds. A battlefield doctor performing miracles of surgery without anesthetic. Drivers without headlights gambling their lives in the darkness of no-man's-land while schoolchildren scamper across Sniper Alley. The author takes us with him into the minefields of modern war with a fierce, vivid, and personal book.About the Author:
Peter Maass is currently a staff writer for the Post.

Book Description Knopf, U.S.A., 1996. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. New first edition hardcover in new jacket. Book covers are so tight it is obvious the book has never been opened to even look at it, much less read it. Jacket looks brand new too but please note that previous owner was a collector who carefully reinforced the dust jacket with what appears to be non-yellowing archival tape along the interior edges to prevent shelf wear. The book itself is in pristine new, clean, tight and unread condition. The only visible flaw is one tiny brown spot on cover, otherwise perfect. Seller Inventory # 047152
