Acclaim for ROBERT D. KAPLAN'S BALKAN GHOSTS "Kaplan is a striking and evocative writer, and the Balkans offer him all the richness of a Garcia Marquez world, where the fantastic is everyday life." -San Francisco Examiner "With remarkable clarity, [Kaplan] explains problems that all sides have lived with throughout the long history of the Balkan peninsula. . . . Mr. Kaplan succeeds in presenting the everyday experience of different Balkan communities in a vivid and significant way. Balkan Ghosts offers the complexity, brutality and beauty in traveling in both the past and the present." -Seattle Times "A timely field guide to the ethnic and religious passions of 'Europe's forgotten rear door.' Few writers surpass Kaplan in the ability to pack useful information into a small space." -San Francisco Chronicle "An often rewarding odyssey filled with vivid writing." -Wall Street Journal "Historical perspective makes Kaplan a superb observer. ... He artfully blends his reporter's notes with rich historical reflection." -Business Week "A well-documented account of the Balkans' past and present. . . . Kaplan . . . forcefully illustrates that the irreconcilable differences among Serbs, Croatians and Bosnians are only one part of the seething ethnic, religious and cultural tensions tearing at a much larger region." -Pittsburgh Post Gazette
