Abstract:

Macedonia is a Balkan powder-keg ready to explode. A bloody rebellion by Albanian guerrillas demanding equal rights to the dominant Slavs in Macedonia killed and wounded hundreds of people, many of them innocent civilians, and raised fears that the crisis would suck in surrounding Kosovo, Albania, Bulgaria and Greece. International intervention brought an uneasy halt to the internecine blood-letting in the summer of 2001, but rioting by ethnic Albanians in Kosovo in spring 2004 led Macedonia to close its borders amid fears that ethnic Albanian rebels might again stir up discontent. Phillips has covered both the fighting on the front-line and the behind-the-scenes diplomatic intrigue in Skopje, showing just how dangerous the instability in Macedonia is for any hope of a lasting peace in the Balkans.Macedonia - Warlords and Rebels in the Balkans has been awarded the Calabria International Journalism Prize 2004.
