As we seek to make sense of the current nightmare in this region, this remarkable, timely book serves as a reliable guide to its people and history.No better introduction to the study of Balkan and Ottoman history exists, nor do I know of any work of fiction that more persuasively introduces the reader to a civilization other than our own. It is an intellectual and emotional adventure to encounter the Ottoman world through Andrics pages in its grandiose beginning and at its tottering finale. It is, in short, a marvelous work, a masterpiece, and very much sui generis... Andrics sensitive portrait of social change in distant Bosnia has revelatory force. — William H. McNeill, from the introductionThe dreadful events occurring in Sarajevo over the past several months turn my mind to a remarkable historical novel from the land we used to call Yugoslavia, Ivo Andrics The Bridge on the Drina. — John M.
