Description
"With a sense of historic complexity in mind, Will Myer travelled to the troubled Balkans 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." "Travelling in Bulgaria and the newly independent Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Myer encounters a bewildering array of political and cultural opinions - Orthodox Christians and Muslims, Communists and nationalists, warlords and modernizers. His investigations take him to Orthodox weddings and Easter parades, political meetings and religious ceremonies. He meets widows and witches, dervishes and mystics. Throughout, he remains fascinated by the human dimension of Macedonia's deep-seated identity crisis." "More than a simple travelogue, People of the Storm God casts light on the troubled history of Macedonia and its unique melting pot of politics, religion, ethnicity and nationalism. Compared to the writing of Patrick Leigh Fermor, this book evocatively reveals both the extraordinary cultural diversity of the Balkans and the weight of history borne by its different peoples."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
