A Comic Book About Macedonia

Macedonia by Harvey Pekar and Heather Roberson

My sitemate (in non-PC lingo, the other volunteer who lives in my town) was kind enough to lend me an illustrated book about the experience of a UC Berkley Peace and Conflict Studies student in Macedonia.  The student, Heather, traveled to Macedonia to research how the country managed to peacefully separate from Yugoslavia.  Her experiences mirror many of my own, and it is an interesting read for anyone looking to learn more about the country – its people, history, politics, ethnic relations and the infamous “Balkan Mentality.”
