There are two voices in this complex and moving pictorial narrative: one is that of Harris the reporter; the other is of the people of the former Yugoslavia in their tragedy, as depicted through these arresting, consciousness-raising pictures. Inevitably, these voices are connected to and ultimately converge in a genocide grounded in issues of culture, religion, blind nationalism, and identity. Yet these issues, so much a part of Harris's book, are not central. The triumph here is that the human spirit ultimately transcends them. The force of human will and the unshakable insistence that the species will survive is really what matters. While the savagery of the orchestrated chaos of ethnic cleansing is depicted, the photographs show a people who retain their collective self-esteem. Harris clearly favors a humanist position in which the words never again take a very special and urgent meaning. Highly recommended for all social science collections.-John Xanthopoulos, Florida Alantic Univ., Boca Raton
