For those who want to find out more about the Srebrenica Genocide, this is one of the books I recommend. There are reviews on Amazon as well…Come back and let us know what you think.
Honig and Both are Dutch foreign policy specialists who take an academic approach to the massacre of Srebrenica in Bosnia in July 1995. Their detailed accounts of UN policy debates and genocidal Serb attacks on the civilian population leading to the expulsion of over 20,000 women and children and the murder of 6,000 (this number is estimated at 8,000 + now) Bosnian Muslim men and boys clearly demonstrate the failure of the international community’s tepid approach to peace-keeping and the responsibility of the military and political leaders involved. The events also served to show the indecisive and weak-willed approach the UN and the Americans adopted in response to the crisis.
In my opinion, the book is dispassionate and slightly distanced from the moral implications of the massacre. It is indeed a “record of a war crime”, a record of Srebrenica Genocide.
