Blood and Vengeance: One Family's Story of the War i...

Invaluable

17 december 2002

Sudetic explores in this groundbreaking work the principal causes of the Bosnian war. Containing major historical events, the book attempts to explain which historical factors may have contributed to the conflict in Bosnia. In addition to an unusually accurate and meticulous research of Bosnian history, Sudetic also describes the tragic fate of a Bosnian family who lived to tell about the unimaginable atrocities that took place in Srebrenica. This is without doubt the most comprehensive and in-depth description of the gruesome massacre of Bosnian muslims in Srebrenica. For those who wish to understand the chief causes of the genocide in Bosnia, this is undoubtedly a riveting and meticulous reference.

Bosnia

A comprehensive account of Bosnian history

13 december 2002

Malcolm has managed to write an accurate and comprehensive account of major historical events in Bosnia. This book is well written, well structured and most importantly meticulously researched. Moreover, the author helps explain what historical factors may have contributed to the war in Bosnia. What I like about this book in particular is that the author is unbiased and meticulous in his writing. A large number of references are included and it is clear that the author had conducted a thorough research prior to completing his book. This book will help you gain a richer understanding of the historical factors that may have played an important role in the Bosnian conflict. Arguably, the best book on the subject matter.

11 december 2002

As is evident from the book's title, this book is intended for practising and prospective english teachers. Its simple structure enables the teacher to teach grammar lucidly and effectively. Every chapter features an analysis of common difficulties that students encounter when studying grammar. This advantage will help you identify the difficulties and consequently reveal the efficient ways to help students deal with troublesome points of grammar.
In the following, I will account for the chief characteristics of this book:
1. a very simple structure,
2. an in-depth analysis of complex sentence structures,
3. the identification of typical grammatical difficulties,
4. its methodological and pedagogical structure,
5. its simple terminology
6. it is comprehensive, well written and lucid.
The above mentioned features should help you decide if this is the book that might improve your grammatical skills.

Medjugorje The Message

A deliberate attempt to deceive the public

9 december 2002

You have to be very gullible and naive to believe in this nonsense. In his book, Weible attempts to convince the reader that the apparitions in Medjugorje actually took place. However, scientists have not been able to produce any evidence in support of these claims. Weible's book contains nothing but cunning Croatian propaganda and sheer lies. The principal objective of his book is to draw the attention to Medjugorje and to attract tourists from all over the world. It is clear that the alleged apparitions are a mere artifice, which sole purpose is to boost tourism and accordingly maximize profit of the croatian government. In my opinion, Christian fanaticism and extremism are the chief characteristics of this book. In conclusion, this is a pure Christian propaganda; a pathetic attempt to manipulate and deceive the public. People who are susceptible to religious fanaticism and those who are mentally unstable should find this book an enjoyable read.

Silent No More: Confronting America's False Images o...

Excellent

6 december 2002

In his book Findley dares to confront the false images of Islam and to provide an accurate image of Muslims. Undoubtedly, the false images of Islam that pervade our western societies are largely based on ignorance and a deliberate misrepresentation of facts. Many people view Muslims as atavistic, fanatic and intractable. These opinions are ignorant, fallacious and unwarranted; they are based on preconceived ideas and bigotry. The principal purpose of education is to combat and obliterate prejudice. Nevertheless parochialism is highly evident in western socities; this is a paradox. It has been corroborated that the majority of Americans loathe Muslims. This book will reveal bigotry, ignorance, parochialism and islamophobia; these elements are characteristic of our western societies.
