Macedonia 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
kivarson on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is a must-read for anyone who read Joe Sacco's tale of war in the former Yugoslavia, "Safe Area Gorazde". "Macedonia" is the chronicle not of war in the Balkans, but the tenuous job of preventing armed conflict in an ethnically diverse Balkan state. Told through the point of view of an American graduate student, we follow her progress in trying to uncover how Macedonia has kept the peace. That this country has managed to keep the peace is surprising, as her visit finds Macedonia rife with ignorance and mistrust between the ethnic Macedonians and ethnic Albanians. If I could change anything about this book, it would be for the artist to give us more panoramic views of the country in bigger splash panels.
