The book is the result of five years of living and traveling in Eastern Europe and personal contact with young and old citizens of Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Bulgaria.
No institutional dissuasion from the World Bank, the EU, the UN, the multitudinous numbers of non-profit institutions, or the various governments has been included; this the reader can obtain on their own. With fair warning, the preponderance of information published by these groups is generally an obfuscation of the living reality, whether intentional or not.
Atlas was a Genius is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents either are the product of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, business establishments, events or locales is entirely coincidental.From the Inside Flap:
Ethnic hatred was masked during forty years of communism in Eastern Europe and the map of the Balkans redrawn again. But the prejudice remains and the world will hear from them again. It will never be easy to forget the dead...or to forgive the living. Maybe when the war crimes trials are finished where as many as 7,000 people stand accused of serious war crimes from Bosnia-Hercegovina. Maybe never. Not in Eastern Europe where people on the street recognize their ethnicity from facial features, detect nuances of language, and never forget what their parents and grandparents told them about those terrible people from the next country. In this part of the world, where former communist countries are just now ready to claim their position in the New Europe, human rights only apply to those humans who have the same ethnology as those in power, and even then this can be easily overcome with money.
