Below is an excerpt from Sheri P. Rosenberg's review of Slavenka Drakulic's new book, They Would Never Hurt a Fly, War Criminals on Trial in The Hague. The full review can be found here.
"As journalist, social critic, and novelist, Drakulić does not seek to answer these questions by way of a linear, academic tone. Rather, she searches for answers by taking us through a series of other important questions that, for the most part, remain unanswered but form the foundation for her inquisitive book. The book weaves its way back and forth in time and between personal and public narrative. For instance, she asks how these war criminals--all housed together in prison and who ostensibly killed in the name of ethnicity--now "play nice" with one another? What does it mean that these men are condemned war criminals to the world and national heroes at home? How has history conspired in the process that led up to the war? And no, she does not give time to the theory of "ancient ethnic hatreds" that we have heard far too much about in reference to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), and that contemporary scholars fortunately have debunked."
