"An excellent account of how [the government] victory was won, and of the price paid for the present peace by Sri Lankans. . . . scrupulously fair." --"Economist""One of the best books published by an Australian this year . . . Himself the grandson of a man who was murdered in Auschwitz, Weiss is aware of the thin line that separates civilised societies from those that sink into collective madness governed by hatred." --"Spectator""[Weiss] writes with passion and a depth of knowledge . . . "The Cage" is a courageous document that holds to account the brutality of a rogue state that is all too often simply seen as a beautiful tourist destination." --"Sydney Morning Herald""A striking account of the ruthless terror wreaked by both sides on the innocent civilians." --"Sunday Times""[A] painstakingly researched and referenced study, and [Weiss'] conclusions are nothing short of horrific." --"Scotsman""A fair and brilliantly written tour de force of this long forgotten war. A book that is long overdue."--ROMA TEARNE, author of "The Mosquito"
