The Falsification of Macedonian History

£18.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published in 1984, this fascinating book is part of a long running territorial, political and historical dispute over the status of Macedonia and its relationship with Greece. Greece and Yugoslavia had a serious disagreement over Macedonia which transferred to the new Republic of Macedonia when it was established as an independent state in 1991. Martis was a Greek politician and in the book he set out to show that, “Macedonia has always been and still is the most advanced part and bastion of Greece” and attacked, “the falsification of Macedonian history continuously undertaken by the Socialist Republic of Macedonia (Skopje)”. In the book he assembled archaeological and documentary evidence to claim that the ancient Macedonians were culturally Greek. He received support in Greece and in 1985 the Academy of Athens awarded Martis ‘The Prize of the Academy of Athens’ for this publication. In awarding the prize, the Academy stated, ‘The Greek nationality of the Macedonians has been constantly challenged with dishonest and not proven arguments by certain foreign powers and organizations. The present book by Mr. Martis authenticates the truth and offers to Greek and foreign readers all aspects of this matter. It counteracts the deceitful foreign claims’. It has been criticized by Balkan historians and politicians who seek to emphasise Macedonian links to the Slavic peoples of the Balkans. The book has a large number of plates, both black and white and colour. Chapter headings include: The roots and Hellenic descent of the Macedonian Greeks; The empire of Alexander the Great in Asia and Africa; Macedonia after antiquity; Distortion of events aiming towards the falsification of Macedonian History.
This book will be useful to those interested in Greek, Macedonian and Balkan history and the diplomatic relationship between Greece and Macedonia.

Condition: Used – Good. The text and binding are in excellent condition. There is some slight scuffing of the edges of the covers. This is not an ex-library book.
