The Contest For Macedonian Identity 1870-1912
By Nick Anastasovski
The Contest For Macedonian Identity 1870-1912 is a scholarly book detailing
the ongoing campaigns to divide and conquer the Macedonian people -
first by the Ottoman Empire under which Macedonia was colonized by Muslims
and many Macedonians converted to Islam; and then by Greece, Serbia
and Bulgaria as they fought to turn Macedonians into Greeks, Serbs and
Bulgarians using State-sponsored teachers, priests, bandits and terrorists
The Contest For Macedonian Identity examines in detail this fierce
competition, and how it was fought at the political, religious, educational,
and day-to-day village level. It analyzes Ottoman, Greek, Bulgarian,
Serbian, Macedonian and other sources and introduces new and original
research by the author from the Bitola region, western Macedonia, and
many other parts of ethnic and Ottoman Macedonia. This is a definitive
work on the occupation of Macedonia in the modern era and the development
and defence of the Macedonian identity.
With 520 pages and a large format, The Contest for Macedonian Identity
1870-1912 is a big, generous book, well researched and easy to read.
