Reviews and Endorsements

'The War Hotel is an ambitious, fascinating exploration of the psychology of conflict, from American street gangs to bloodshed in the Balkans. With Arlene Audergon as guide, the reader takes an enlightening journey to the hidden underside of modern war, and finds a ray of hope that humankind can, indeed, 'break free from the nightmare.'
- Charles J. Hanley, Pulitzer Prize-winning Associated Press special correspondent, with 30 years of experience covering war zones and co-author of The Bridge at No Gun Ri: A Hidden Nightmare from the Korean War

'From her rich personal experience working in conflict areas, Arlene Audergon not only describes the inner and outer nature of war, but the personal and community developments we must make to find relief, resolution and a wise center in the midst of it all.'
- Arnold Mindell, international conflict facilitator, author of The Deep Democracy of Open Forums and Sitting in the Fire

'This absorbing, inspiring work combines the experience of working in war torn circumstances, cultural sensitivity and Process Work theory. The War Hotel reveals the hidden terror of violent conflict, and offers a revitalizing perspective - that spoke directly to my experience and work with the processes creating so much violence here in DC, and for these turbulent times.'
- John L. Johnson, Ed.D Professor Emeritus, University of the District of Columbia

'With its passion, wisdom and care, The War Hotel means making sense of my own experience of war. Yes, we lived through it, suffered and most of us felt it was just 'happening to us'. Reading this book puts in a frame the confusing and painful experiences in a way we can actually look at it and learn from it - and feel a part of the great jigsaw puzzle of human beings on earth.'
- Tanja Radocaj, Zagreb, Head of UNICEF Office, Croatia
