Serbia ... a nation vilified by the media for the past decade introduces the international traveler to the other Serbia that was hidden from public view. Like eye-candy, the book's pages are intoxicating for those who have already explored her beauty or those who may be intrigued with Balkan travel to discover Serbia's many secrets. There have been numerous books inspired by malice of Serbia, however, Faces & Places was inspired by the love of a nation and her people. With few words and hundreds of fabulous photographs, the authors explored nature's wonders, the family farm, museums, the royal palace, the performing arts in Belgrade, historic places and statues as well as important churches and monasteries whose frescoes from the 12th and 13th centuries are considered World Treasures. The book also contains close-up and personal presentations of Serbians in various walks of life, revealing the reasons Serbs have managed to overcome centuries of difficulties brought on by both friend and foe. Serbia's spirit of optimism, her work ethic, a 1,000 years of Orthodox Christianity and her tenacity for freedom is a reminder that Belgrade's citizens, in the 20th century alone, endured 5 separate, lethal, organized and sustained aerial bombing attacks at the hands of foreign aggressors. "The pages exude the soul and heartbeat of Serbia."... Alex Machaskee, retired President and Publisher of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio.
