This is firsthand war reporting without body counts or strategic analyses- in-depth political commentary without the statements of presidents or the opinions of self-appointed experts. Drakulič focuses on individual lives... using the perversions that war forces onto everyday life to reveal the true complexity of the crisis and the enormity of the task of reconciliation.The NationIn the tradition of George Orwells Shooting an Elephant or Primo Levis writings on Auschwitz, Drakulič has sought and found illumination by focusing on the details of daily life under pressure.Boston PhoenixThe Balkan Express is about the effects of war on peoples souls.

It is a passionate defense of the individual, an important and timely book that deserves the widest possible audience.Chicago Tribune
