Safe Area Gorazde : The War in Eastern Bosnia 1992-95, Paperback / softback Book

Safe Area Gorazde : The War in Eastern Bosnia 1992-95 Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In late 1995 and early 1996, cartoonist/reporter Joe Sacco travelled four times to Gorazde, a UN-designated safe area during the Bosnian War, which had teetered on the brink of obliteration for three and a half years.

Still surrounded by Bosnian Serb forces, the mainly Muslim people of Gorazde had endured heavy attacks and severe privation to hang on to their town while the rest of Eastern Bosnia was brutally 'cleansed' of its non-Serb population.

But as much as Safe Area Gorazde is an account of a terrible siege, it presents a snapshot of people who were slowly letting themselves believe that a war was ending and that they had survived.

Since it was first published in 2000, Safe Area Gorazde has been recognized as one of the absolute classics of graphic non-fiction.

We are delighted to publish it in the UK for the first time, to stand beside Joe Sacco's other books on the Cape list - Palestine, The Fixer and Notes from a Defeatist.
