Gerald Asher, who served as Gourmet’s wine editor for thirty years, has drawn together this selection of his essays, published in Gourmet and elsewhere, for the collective insight they give into why a wine should always be an expression of a place and a time. Guiding the reader through twenty-seven diverse wine regions in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and California, he shows how every wine worth drinking is a reflection of its terroir—in the broadest sense of that untranslatable word. In evocative reminiscences of wines, winemakers, and the meals he has had with them, he weaves together climate, terrain, and local history, sharing his knowledge and experience so skillfully that we learn as we are entertained and come to understand, gradually, that the meaning and pleasure of a wine lie always in the context of its origin and in the concurrence of where, how, and with whom we enjoy it.

In his personal, poignant and often-critical account, Oliver evaluates the role of the international community in its responses to the war and the efforts to rebuild the country. The book examines events between June 1995 and July 1998 inside what became the Former Yugoslavia (Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia) during Oliver's work for the International Conference on the Former Yugoslavia and, post-war, the Office of the High Representative and the European Community Monitoring Mission. A rich blend of action and analysis, the commentary is alive to both the politics of the day and to the frustrations and realities of cementing the peace. War and Peace in the Balkans is an enthralling account which will be essential reading for aid, charity and humanitarian practitioners world-wide, as well as for the layperson who simply wants to understand what happened in Bosnia and what role the UN, International and Non-Governmental Organisations played in rebuilding and reshaping the country after the war.
