Antigonus II Gonatas: A Political Biography
by Janice J. Gabbert
Book Description:
Blunt, honest and tenacious, Antigonus II Gonatas assumed the title King of Macedonia in 283 BC and reigned for more than forty years. Pragmatic and occasionally ruthless, he was a well-educated man with a keen interest in philosophy. He gathered about him poets, philosophers and historians; his long reign, despite vicissitudes, re-established Macedonia as a nation. Janice J. Gabbert portrays the eventful life of this enigmatic king in a lively and engaging manner. Her aim is to trace the political career of a man about whose life almost no official records survive. Taking into account the most recent epigraphical evidence, the author brings to life a fascinating political figure.This is the first study entirely devoted to Antigonus for over eighty years.

Macedonia to America and Back : A Biographical History of Dimitri Nasos
by Thomay Nestor
The Author
Macedonia in Northern Greece is closer than one thinks to the strife in Yugoslavia. With the influx of refugees from Kosovo, Macedonians are doing what they have always done--reaching out their hands to help those in need. The author helps one understand the background of this troubled area of Europe. The Macedonians themselves struggled for years with the Bulgarians and the Turks. Because of the murder of his father by the Bulgarians, sixteen-year-old Dimitri, the eldest son, had to flee for his life. While his mother held the family together in Macedonia, in America this immigrant boy moved from dishwasher to restauranteur to movie entrepreneur. He moved among the nobility of the screen world, from Charlie Chaplin to Al Jolson. However, he returned to his beloved Macedonia, always remembering his mother's words: Accept whatever fate brings you; there's nothing we can do about it. The essence of history, culture, and family pervades this book.

The Miss Stone Affair : America's First Modern Hostage Crisis
by Teresa Carpenter
Book Description: On September 3, 1901, Miss Ellen Stone, an American missionary, set out on horseback for a trek across the mountainous hinterlands of Balkan Macedonia. In a narrow gorge she was attacked by a band of masked men who carried her off the road and, more significantly, onto the path of history. Stone would become the first American captured for ransom on foreign soil. 

In The Miss Stone Affair, master storyteller and Pulitzer Prize winner Teresa Carpenter re-creates the drama of this country's first modern hostage crisis -- an event that held the world's attention and dominated the headlines in American and European dailies for months. Using a wealth of contemporary correspondence and diplomatic cables, she constructs a narrative that is suspenseful, harrowing, and at times even comical. 

On a journey that takes the reader from Boston's Beacon Hill to Constantinople and the bloody revolution-wracked nation-states of the Balkans, Carpenter introduces an unforgettable cast of characters: the strong-willed Miss Stone and her Bulgarian companion, Katerina Tsilka, who is brought along by the kidnappers -- in deference to Victorian convention -- as a chaperone; the terrorists who threaten to murder their hostages and yet are awed when Tsilka gives birth to a baby girl; the diplomat who sees the Stone case as a vehicle for his personal ambition; rival negotiators whom the terrorists pit one against the other; a media mogul obsessed with finding the hostages and securing their literary rights; and, of course, the new president, Theodore Roosevelt, who must decide if he should, as many of his countrymen are demanding, send warships to the Near East or if some quieter form of intervention might win the day. 

Teresa Carpenter has produced a turn-of-the-century international thriller with precision, drama, and historical perspective. This is a story for our time.
