The Lives They Once Knew
In contrast to the numerous learned books that have already been published about the Balkans, in This Was Not Our War, Ambassador-author Swanee Hunt tells the history of the conflict through the experiences of those who lived through it. By conducting in-depth interviews, Hunt analyzes the war from a perspective that “listens to the cries of women in war, understanding that their experience is instructive and their perceptions insightful.” Together, the 26 Bosnian women that Hunt spoke with, conclude that if they had been in power, the brutal and grotesque Bosnian conflict would never have happened.
