Review:

...will be read even after the events of the war years in Croatia and Bosnia have sunk into oblivion. -- Professor Emeritus, former Chairman of Slavic and Comparative Literature; University of Southern California

Anatomy of Deceit undertakes a serious and most necessary review of how media and official factors manipulate raw information... -- Muhamed Sacirbey Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Bosnia-Herzegovina to the United Nations

Anatomy of Deceit undertakes a serious and most necessary review of how media and official factors manipulate raw information ... My continuing official responsibilities curtail me from pronouncing a final judgment on Dr. Blaskovich's conclusions. Nonetheless, Dr. Blaskovich's presentation of the facts are supported by many of my first hand observations and one can reach their own judgment on the basis of these facts ... -- Muhamed Sacirbey: Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Bosnia-Herzegovina to the United Nations,11 April 1997

His...book...has three parts: the physical events of the Serbian military action; broken, mutilated bodies, hospitals under siege... -- Irene B. Bierman, Ph.D.Director Gustave von Grunebaum Center for Near Eastern Studies, UCLA

Jerry Blaskovich, a dermatologist and expert on ABC (atomic, biological, chemical) warfare was called...by the Foreign Press Bureau in Zagreb in 1991 to investigate allegations of gas/chemical attacks by Serbs on civilian targets...That was the beginning of his...Anatomy of Deceit. His...book...has three parts: the physical events of the Serbian military action; broken, mutilated bodies, hospitals under siege, Croatian and Bosnian victims of programmed torture and rape. These hate killed acts are documented by medical investigations, including autopsies. Second, the realization that the international media who witnessed the same unspeakable horrors would not speak of them or write of them: persuaded themselves and the world that the Serbs were guiltless and that the Croats, even women and children and the elderly, were not victims of hate-filled violence, but simply war casualties. -- Irene B. Bierman, Ph.D., Director Gustave von Grunebaum Center for Near Eastern Studies, UCLA 24 March 1997

The very title...Anatomy of Deceit, suggest a painful exploration of human existence. In spite of the apocalyptic tone, the book is written in the style of an odyssey; lyrical tone of narration prevails from the beginning to the end. Thorough as the evidence in every instance is, the style lifts the book from the dullness of discursive prose to the inspiring regions of the genre of fiction...This book will be read even after the events of the war years in Croatia and Bosnia have sunk into oblivion. -- Anthony M. Mlikotin: Professor Emeritus, former Chairman of Slavic and Comparative Literature; University of Southern California

We believe Dr. Blaskovich's book is destined to become the seminal piece in the truth puzzle about the former Yugoslavia. -- American Croatian Review, October 1997
