Love Thy Neighbor by Peter Maass

From the conflict in Bosnia, a war correspondent’s montage of images—eerie, grotesque, ironic, angry, absurd. A Serb and Muslim, friends before the war, exchanging gossip via shortwave radio hours before they will try to kill each other. The Serbian president coolly denying reports of atrocities that have been witnessed by hundreds. A battlefield doctor performing miracles of surgery without anesthetic. Drivers without headlights gambling their lives in the darkness of no-man’s-land while schoolchildren scamper across Sniper Alley. Love Thy Neighbor ventures into the minefields of modern war. Published in 1996 by Alfred A. Knopf, Love Thy Neighbor won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for nonfiction and the Overseas Press Club Book Prize, and was a finalist for several other literary awards. Foreign editions have been published in Britain, Germany, Bosnia, South Korea and Taiwan.
