Description
"Macedonia is a problem," wrote Will Myer, who developed a passion for the Balkans as a teenager in the mid-1980s. "It is such a problem that the French named fruit salad after it: macédoine des fruits. Four wars have been fought over it in the last 80 years, each bloodier than the previous one. They were fought to determine not only where exactly Macedonia is, but who lives there and in what state they should live." With this sense of historical complexity in mind, Myer traveled to the troubled region in autumn 1994 and the following spring. His aim was to discover the political and human reality of a region beset by conflict and controversy, fought over for centuries by rival powers. In particular, he sought to explore the true nature of Macedonian identity, or rather of a multiple identity. His investigations take him to Orthodox weddings and Easter parades, political meetings and religious ceremonies. He encounters widows and witches, dervishes and mystics. Throughout, he remains fascinated by the human dimension of Macedonia's deep-seated identity crisis.
