Macedonia: Waiting for Skopje The Macedonia of nationalist-leaning Prime Minister Nikola
The Macedonia of nationalist-leaning Prime Minister Nikola Gurevski is determined to carve a modern place by reworking ancient history.

As a result, the former Yugoslav republic now has two enemies: it’s own Albanian minority and Athens. Suddenly, European membership and national stability seem further away than ever.
