About this title

Synopsis:

This is the first book in any language to bring together -- in a powerful point-counterpoint format -- political, ethical, and cultural commentary on the Kosovo conflict by internationally renowned contributors. Also woven into the book are moving firsthand stories of the suffering Balkan people.Composed of some sixty essays written in dialogue with one another, the book contains assessments by noted politicians and analysts (Henry Kissinger, Juergen Habermas, Zbigniew Brzezinski), government officials (Javier Solana, Kofi Annan, Vaclav Havel, Morton Halperin), award-winning journalists (Mark Danner, Tim Judah, Robert Kaplan), human rights advocates (Julie Mertus), theologians and ethicists (Jean Bethke Elshtain, Brian Hehir, David Little, Vatican Archbishop Tauran, Stanley Harakas), historians (Miranda Vickers), military leaders (General Wesley Clark), and many other key figures.The book also includes photos, maps, a time line, a list of key names, NATO objectives, and online resources for further study of this critical regional conflict with worldwide implications.

From the Publisher:

The North Atlantic Alliance has lead the war in Kosovo against the genocidal regime of Milosevic in the name of certain principles and values; in the name of human empathy for the fate of others. Because an honest man cannot watch the systematic killing of other people which has been organized by the state, without coming to help when it is within his powers and possibilities.

For as long as this principle does not become a generally respected and appreciated norm, it is our duty to strongly preach these values and to convey objective and detailed information in the same way as this book does--on a remarkably extensive and qualified level.

--President Vaclav Havel, the Czech Republic
