Ian Oliver
The hostilities that saw the break-up of Tito’s Yugoslavia ravaged the Balkans and generated some of the most tragic episodes in modern history. War and Peace in the Balkans explores the history of the conflict and its themes from an insider’s perspective. In this independent and critical account, Ian Oliver uses his extensive experience in the region to evaluate the role of the international community in its responses to the war and the efforts to rebuild. Using his extensive experience in the region, Ian Oliver explores the history of the conflict and its themes from an insider’s perspective. In his personal, poignant and often-critical account, Oliver evaluates the role of the international community in its responses to the war and the efforts to rebuild the country. The book examines events between June 1995 and July 1998 inside what became the Former Yugoslavia (Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia) during Oliver's work for the International Conference on the Former Yugoslavia and, post-war, the Office of the High Representative and the European Community Monitoring Mission. A rich blend of action and analysis, the commentary is alive to both the politics of the day and to the frustrations and realities of cementing the peace. War and Peace in the Balkans is an enthralling account which will be essential reading for aid, charity and humanitarian practitioners world-wide, as well as for the layperson who simply wants to understand what happened in Bosnia and what role the UN, International and Non-Governmental Organisations played in rebuilding and reshaping the country after the war.
Erik Larson
In The Devil in the White City, the smoke, romance, and mystery of the Gilded Age come alive as never before.

Two men, each handsome and unusually adept at his chosen work, embodied an element of the great dynamic that characterized America’s rush toward the twentieth century. The architect was Daniel Hudson Burnham, the fair’s brilliant director of works and the builder of many of the country’s most important structures, including the Flatiron Building in New York and Union Station in Washington, D.C. The murderer was Henry H. Holmes, a young doctor who, in a malign parody of the White City, built his “World’s Fair Hotel” just west of the fairgrounds—a torture palace complete with dissection table, gas chamber, and 3,000-degree crematorium.

Burnham overcame tremendous obstacles and tragedies as he organized the talents of Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles McKim, Louis Sullivan, and others to transform swampy Jackson Park into the White City, while Holmes used the attraction of the great fair and his own satanic charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths. What makes the story all the more chilling is that Holmes really lived, walking the grounds of that dream city by the lake.

The Devil in the White City draws the reader into a time of magic and majesty, made all the more appealing by a supporting cast of real-life characters, including Buffalo Bill, Theodore Dreiser, Susan B. Anthony, Thomas Edison, Archduke Francis Ferdinand, and others. Erik Larson’s gifts as a storyteller are magnificently displayed in this rich narrative of the master builder, the killer, and the great fair that obsessed them both.
