“At the end of the twentieth century, we are trying to separate inseparable strands, to divide this one from that one, because this one may be Macedonian and that one may be Bulgarian … Here the men sit back like the old men of Crete, talking about nationalism and hate while the women do all the work.” (Robert Kaplan, from Balkan Ghosts)
