Historical Dictionary of North Macedonia, Hardback Book

Historical Dictionary of North Macedonia Hardback

Part of the Historical Dictionaries of Europe series


Located in the middle of the Balkans, North Macedonia reflects the turbulent history of the region.

The country emerged from former Yugoslavia in the 1990s without violence but struggled to achieve international recognition due to a dispute with neighboring Greece over its name and symbols.

The name issue was resolved only in 2008 with the signature of the Prespa Agreement reviving prospects for membership in NATO and the European Union (EU).

Yet North Macedonia's story goes centuries back, to the Middle Ages, the period of Ottoman Rule which lasted until 1912, and the various reincarnations of Yugoslavia.

The historical dictionary traces the country's past and present with a wealth of articles on issues, events, institutions, personalities shaping political, economic and cultural life.

It looks at the majority Macedonian as well as other ethnic communities such as the Albanians, Turks and the Roma.

There are also entries on North Macedonia's relations with neighbors, in history and today, as well as with global powers. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of North Macedonia contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography.

The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture.

This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about North Macedonia.
