    ePUB Gordon Weiss Ê ePUB The Cage eBook ´ Ê sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk cage book, The Cage KindleAlthough I bought the book months before I was waiting to read the book from the appropriate place My Home where I can feel as a Thamizh Before moving further I make sure that eventhough I have very deep sympathy towards the Sri Lankan Tamizhs and their cause of Eelam I don't have any soft corner for LTTE and their Ego For people who haven't had a chance to know the core issue like me this book provides a detailed account of ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka And the great thing that surprised me on this book is it's neutrality It's also propaganda free and unbiased which gives a very reliable account of the w

    ePUB Gordon Weiss Ê ePUB The Cage eBook ´ Ê sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk cage book, The Cage KindleI read this while traveling through Sri Lanka and while it doesn't paint a pretty picture of the country it was helpful to get some background information about the civil war that took place there The first few chapters give you a good idea of the country's history from the origins of the Sinhalese and Tamil cultures in Sri Lanka to the recent political events that fueled the war The author also does a great job of gathering accounts from people who lived through the war lending the book some nice narratives that are a break from the analytical parts of the book I think he also seems uite fair not labeling any one group the good guys or bad guys though he does come down pretty hard on the family that's currently in power I would recommend this book to anyone traveling to Sri Lanka or anyone who would like to better understand the horrible war that took place there
