Read in December, 2010

At the height of the 1999 NATO bombings on Belgrade, Simon Winchester travels through the Balkans, bearing witness to the strained torsions of ethnic and religious division stretching between the historic endpoints of Vienna and Istanbul. The Balkans' bitter history is seen through the welcome bias of an outsider’s eyes, untangling the strife, conflict and even the fractured geology of the region without great proclamations of moral judgment. An excellent primer on this heart rending collision.
