Honey brings together some of the top names in reporting on the conflict in the Balkans. Ron Haviv, the first Western journalist to capture Serbian atrocities on film and one of the premier photographic chroniclers of the conflict, offers a selection of photos that bridge the gap between the soldiers and refugees in the Balkans and the stark but dignified reality of everyday life for the Croatian, Serbian, Albanian, Slovenian, and Bosnian people.

Chuck Sudetic, the leading correspondent of The New York Times in the former Yugoslavia for much of the recent conflicts, explains the price of war for the peoples of the Balkans and the powerful forces that underlie the cyclical escalations of emotion there. Sudetic portrays a country whose long-held ethnic hatreds have been systematically exploited by two men -- Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia and Franjo Tudjman of Croatia -- who gained power by inciting fierce nationalist passions. Blood and Honey is an unforgettable portrait of life amid the ravages of war.
