Long DescriptionIn July 1995, approximately 7000 Muslim men, women and children died at Serbian hands in and around the Bosnian town of Srebrenica. It was the largest mass execution in Europe since the Nazi era; a stunning failure for the United Nations and the Western powers; and the grim watershed that led to Nato air strikes and the current fragile peace. The author asks how this shocking and still imperfectly understood act of genocide was allowed to take place in the first place. This work puts a human face on the grim statistics and tangled politics of this event. Through the odyssey of the Celiks, a Muslim family, journalist Chuck Sudetic tells the story a people and a nation. His narrative folds reaches as far back as the Battle of Kosovo in 1389, and unfolds towards the Celiks' rendezvous with history in the so-called "safe area" of Srebrenica.

Over the past few months, we have been making some very big changes to the site. You have already seen some of the cosmetic changes but the bulk of the changes have been behind the scenes.

The biggest changes have all happened on the database side of things. We have changed the way we collect, review and display the information for each product.

Although most people won't care about the changes that happen in the background, some of those changes also come with updates to the user interface beyond simple cosmetics.

We hope to have the new version out to the public in the next few weeks and by the end of this year for sure. But we would like to offer a few users the opportunity to try out the new site in the testing environment.

Basically, we would like a few people to just play around in the test area and if something isn't working as expected, just let us know.

If this is something you might be interested in, please contact us. We will set up a user account for you and then you can test.

Just keep in mind, as people are testing, we will continue to make improvements so the test site may change a little from day to day.
