NR 5 2013THEME: Alienation and Tolerance


A Question of Attitude

The causes of xenophobia are multiple and they interact. The attitudes one has towards immigrants affect one's actions and ideology, but not all the time and not always in ways that are easy to predict.


Dayton Reexamined

"Dayton." The word has come to signify the end of the seemingly intractable violence in Bosnia from 1992 to 1995. The narrative surrounding it is powerful: after everyone else had tried and failed, an American diplomat took the warring parties off to an isolated air force base in Ohio, where he bent them to his will and ended the war. Richard Holbrooke left no doubt in his book To End a War that the critical moment was when he convinced Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic to accept peace with the Federation (Bosniak and Croat) forces arrayed against him and the army of Republika Srpska.

Deniers of Genocide

The Bosnian genocide of 1992-1995 was, along with the Rwandan genocide that took place in the same period, decisive in shifting the world's perception and understanding of what 'genocide' meant. Previously, it was common to hear even scholars claiming that there had been only one or two genocides in world history: the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews; possibly the Ottoman genocide of Armenians and/or the Khmer Rouge genocide of Cambodians.

Editor's Column

Overextension and the Market of Opinion

When children of two to three years old learn to speak, they tend to use as few words as they can in a particularly generous manner. The word ball could mean all things that are round, and lamp all things that shine.
