Description
The vast mountainous area that makes up the Balkans is rife with discord, both cultural and topographical and, as Simon Winchester superbly demonstrates in this intimate portrait of the region, much of the political strife of the past century can be traced to its inherent contrasts. With the aid of a guide and linguist, Winchester traveled deep into the region's most troublesome areas -- including Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, and Turkey -- just as the most recent war was tearing these countries apart. The result is not just a book about war, but about how war affects the living. Both timeless and current, The Fracture Zone goes behind the headlines to offer a true picture of a region that has always been on the brink. Winchester's remarkable journey puts all the elements together -- the faults, the fractures, and the chaos -- to make sense out of a seemingly senseless place.
