    After reading so many positive reviews of Pascal Manoukian’s books, I was tempted to give one of his earlier novels, “Le Diable au creux de la main”, a try. This book is an autobiographical account of Manoukian’s own experiences covering international conflicts around the world. In each chapter, he writes about a different war or genocide that he witnessed first-hand as a journalist and photographer. As such, rather unusually for a single work, the book covers everything from the fall of the Ber After reading so many positive reviews of Pascal Manoukian’s books, I was tempted to give one of his earlier novels, “Le Diable au creux de la main”, a try. This book is an autobiographical account of Manoukian’s own experiences covering international conflicts around the world. In each chapter, he writes about a different war or genocide that he witnessed first-hand as a journalist and photographer. As such, rather unusually for a single work, the book covers everything from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the Soviet-Afghanistan war and the Khmer Rouge. Manoukian also speaks at length about a genocide of personal impact to him, i.e., the genocide of Armenians by the Turkish government. I found the book engaging, thought-provoking, and very touching in many places. If I were, however, to make one criticism about the book, it is the fact that it is a bit too much of ‘a whirlwind tour.’ I almost wished that Manoukian had written a book about each separate conflict, as I wanted to know more about the history and issues leading to the conflict, as well as more about Manoukian’s own thoughts and experiences. Another slight criticism is that the coverage of each conflict was rather one-sided and biased for my tastes. (But then again, this book was never presented as a historical work!) All in all, this book is a wonderful introduction to modern-day international conflicts that leaves the reader with a lot to contemplate in regards to the grave inequalities and injustices that persist to this day in the world, as well as our relative great fortune to be living in the peaceful and prosperous West. A book that I sincerely recommend to those interested in history and current affairs.
