My review of Ed Vulliamy’s book about the Bosnian War, The War is Dead, Long Live the War, is now available at 3:AM. This was a long one to write and I consulted Nick Cohen’s chapters on Bosnia in his seminal What’s Left, which provides an overview of the war and a demolition of the denial claims. My paras on the Leuchter Report and holocaust denial rely heavily on Deborah Lipstadt’s Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.
Other 3:AM writing that I haven’t got round to posting on here:
– A piece on Colin Shindler’s book about the relationship between Israel and the left
– An article explaining why John Lanchester’s Capital isn’t very good
– A review of Blaine Harden’s book on the North Korean death camps, featuring the story of Shin Dong-hyuk, who escaped from one of the camps
– A piece on Irvine Welsh’s remarkable prequel novel, Skagboys.
