Here is the preface of the book:

PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION

The sole purpose of the first edition of this book was to give young Greeks another version of the origins of the modern Greek people, a rather different version, that runs counter to what has been taught in Greek schools for decades.

As the overtones of the modern Greek nationalist mythology gradually came into focus, culminating in such nationalist clichés as the assertion that ‘the Greek nation has no kin’, that the ‘Skopjans’ are ‘Gypsies’, or that the (Former Yugoslav) Republic of Macedonia is an ‘ethnic hotchpotch’, I was taken aback, and eventually got down to writing this, the third edition.

My hopes of doing what I could to set up an opposing force to this rampant nationalism have not been entirely in vain, considering that something like 3,000 copies have been sold all over the country. For a book of this nature, this is quite an achievement.

Viewed in the light of the general situation in Europe, Greece’s present foreign policy has shown that the country’s modern ideological armour is still very much the product of a nationalist upbringing, the roots of which go back to somewhere around the beginning of the nineteenth century. But the nation will never find its way in the European Union carrying this sort of ideological baggage.

One of the cornerstones of this ideology is the unrealistic theory that the modem Greeks, expressing as they do the enduring nature of the Greek language, are the biological descendants of the ancient Greeks. It was concocted in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to serve as an ideological arsenal in the efforts to create a modern Greek nation in view of the impending collapse of the feudal, theocratic Ottoman Empire. The philosophical challenge to theocracy as a social model of governance first emerged, together with the concept of human rights, in north-western Europe in the sixteenth century, the century of philosophical humanism that produced Erasmus, Shakespeare, and other great thinkers. In Greece, 400 years after the theocratic beliefs of the Middle Ages were first challenged (in 1967, to be precise), there was still talk of ‘the Greece of Greek Christians’; and even today we hear a great deal about ‘Greek Orthodox culture’ — a culture that has never in fact existed as such, being known rather as ‘Orthodox Eastern Roman culture’.

This country’s cultural backwardness has been starkly underlined by the efforts of modern Greek society to use the institution of the European City of Culture (Thessaloniki in 1997) to vaunt the mediaeval ideal of the Orthodox Eastern Roman culture of Mount Athos, not only as a historical and cultural facet of the multiethnic Byzantine Empire, but also as a ‘Greek’ national and religious heritage. These efforts may even have been subsidised by the European Union, at a time when sixty per cent of the population of the Netherlands, one of the most religious countries in Europe, have officially rejected any form of religious doctrine.

A large segment of modern Greek society, which has never really embarked upon the process of ideological modernisation, oscillates desperately between modernism and Greek Orthodox fundamentalism, displaying an inherent inability to make any sort of ideological distinction between the terms ‘race’, nationality’, and ‘cultural or ethnic identity’. Apart from the fact that even well-respected journalists are engaged in daily attempts to convince the younger generation that we are directly descended from ‘our ancient forebears’, views that go against the theory of ‘one race, one religion, one nation’ are regarded as nationally reprehensible. It is on this theory that most Greeks base their belief that there are no minorities in our country, apart from the ‘Greek Moslems’ of Western Thrace. Greek citizens who have publicly proclaimed that they do not feel like Greeks but like ethnic Macedonians or ethnic Turks have been pursued and convicted by Greek justice, which just goes to show that modem Greek society not only fails to show the necessary respect for what is different, but cannot even tolerate it. And, being in the grip of a virulent Hellenocentric egomania, this same society, while denying Greek citizens the right to any ethnic identity other than Greek, constantly exhorts Greeks living in other countries to preserve their Greek ethnic identity.

Personally, I couldn’t care less what race the citizens of modern Greece belong to; the only purpose of this book is to show, and substantiate with written documentation, how rotten and historically untenable obsessive nationalism is, in the hope of infusing as many young people as possible with respect for the right to self-determination of every Greek citizen and every ethnic group that calls itself a minority, as long as the country’s laws and territorial integrity are respected.

    More Grkoman crap! Look at the title: “The Close Racial Kinship Between the Greeks, Bulgarians, and Turks: Macedonia and Thrace.” Great, so in Macedonia and Thrace there are only Greeks, Bulgarians, and Turks! Are you processing what you write?? Are you LjuBco Georgievski?? WHo are you?

  5. COL Says:

    iF YOU SLAVS CAN PULL THIS OFF ABOUT MACEDONIA YOU CAN RULE THE WORLD.

    i CAN NOT BELIEVE THE DEPTH OF CRAP YOU PEOPLE (BLOGA AND SLAV) ARE GOING ON WITH. THE HISTROY IS HELLENIC NOT SLAV. THAT IS A FACT.

    THE WORLD DOES NOT GIVE A SHIT

  6. makedonika Says:

    COL, you will be very surprised on the documents that will be posted on this Blog.
    I hope you will continue to read this blog so you will be able to see the real history of the Macedonians.
    Your world will crumble.

    Stay tuned.

  7. Pavlos Says:

    I hope you Macedonians have realized that you can not build a national identity, built in a lie. The history simply cannot change. You want to call yourselves Macedonians. And you also want to beleive that your history comes from the ancient Macedonian tribe. Well, this will never happen. Because you simply are slavs (coming to the balkan area hundreds of years later than ancient Macedonians) and slavs you will remain. Yoy have absolutely nothing to do with Macedonians. And remeber this sir……… a coutry has to has a history and a national identity of its own to survive. A coutry that wants to “steal” a national identity from someone else………. simply has no future. That’s why, Your pitifull little coutry will be soon “swallowed” by the albanians.

  8. Pavlos Says:

    And I really hope you enjoyed the greek veto. Try to understand this: If Greece does not want you….. you are nothing in the balkan area, even if USA or the whole world wants you. You are totally dependent on Greece. Your future is dependent on Greece. And no USA or noone else can help you. I hope mr Atanasov – after the “slap” – in the NATO Bucharest summit… you understood that.

  9. Νίκος Says:

    Hello there,

    I happen to have met dr Nakratzas in person. He’s an honest and straightforward antinationalist, although a doctor as in MD, and by no means claims to be an expert on the subject. I’m also Greek, so please assume the appropriate bias.

    This whole issue, as I understand it, is that people have been living together in the region of Macedonia for centuries, and it’s only reasonable to believe that everyone is of, more or less, mixed ancestry. There are no 3000-year historical trajectories and no linear descendants of Alexander in any part of the world… And I honestly don’t give a shit if I’m descendant of this murderous insane-in-the-brain midget.

    For the sake of accuracy, there’s a new version of the book titled “The close racial kinship between Greeks, Bulgarians and ETHNIC MACEDONIANS”.

    Therefore, if you try to use Nakratzas’ arguments against Greek nationalism but forget about your own, then you deserve to be laughed at your face.

    Warm regards,
    your Grkman first cousin.

    MY DEAR PSEUDO MAKEDONIKA……

    Edited by makedonika: STEDO please tone down your Racism towards the Macedonian Nation and the Macedonian People. This is your last warning, if you post another comment like this I will post your email address and your IP-number for everyones pleasure. You have been warned.

  11. Lyles Says:

    It’s funny that these types of people always try to undermine the integrity of the Hellenic lineage and lay claim as descendants themselves. The fact of the matter is, there has never once been told through rumor, speculation, or historical fact that there was a mass invasion or mass exodus of indigenous peoples from the lands of Greece at anytime since the last invasion of the Dorians around 1200BC. That being said, there is many historical models that show that the peoples now living in what is known as the former Yugoslavia did migrate down in the 7th century AD So I ask you, if Modern Greeks are not descended from the ancient Greeks, who is? The Turks, the Slavs, the Albanians?What other people can claim the right to the ancient heritage and still speak the language with many ancient sayings and words still in their vernacular? Yes many foreign armies have occupied Greece over the centuries but never have they mixed with the population in those kind of numbers needed to dilute the racial integrity not by even a little bit. So check your facts and get back to me if you can.

  12. Ivica Says:

    Just want to tell to all Greeks: it’s not our fault that the history is hiden from you, that you are lied.
    And once again, swearing and humiliating, the only things Greeks know to do.

  13. Ivica Says:

    @Nikoc
    your url is fake, I don’t need loan, thank you

  14. Νίκος Says:

    Ivica, give me a break, it’s obviously a technical problem. If you can’t google it yourself, then you may as well follow this link to Nakratzas’ website.

    Voilà!

  15. Νίκος Says:

    In any case… just copy-paste into your browser the url after the colon (;) – that’s the www part and beyond. Makedonika, can you please fix the links above? Thanks.

  16. VMRO Says:

    Attn: Makedonec to the Core, how about you read the book first then you talk, I have read the book and find it very resourceful as it has references to Macedonian villages populated by Macedonians. There is no mention of Macedonians in the title because we are not kin to the Turks, Greeks or Bulgarians, we Macedonians have not Macedonized anyone opposed to the hellinization/Bulgarinization attempts of Macedonia’s neighbouring countries.

  17. VMRO Says:

    Attn: Νίκος, i agree on the points you raise, everybody is mixed. Regarding the new book “The close racial kinship between Greeks, Bulgarians and Ethnic Macedonians”, i will be looking forward to reading it, especially regarding the kinship part with Macedonians and Bulgarians, i say this due to the fact that Dr Nakratzas in his first book “The close racial kinship between Greeks, Bulgarians and Turks” excludes any Bulgarian kinship with Macedonians, unless he will be referring to the population from Thrace who have been Bulgarinized.

  25. MacedonianKnife Says:

    Macedonians, who in 1912 had numbered 374,000, from the Aegean part of Macedonia.126,000 were killed and expeld in Bulgaria and Turkey. the Greek state resettled 618,000 persons.The colonization by this population, whom the Macedonians called madziri(in-comers, foreigners,asian gypsys),resulted in the Aegean part of Macedonia losing its Macedonian ethnic character.The Macedonians(240,000) became a minority;they were present as a majority only in the western part of the Aegean part of Macedonia.

  26. MacedonianKnife Says:

    And you expeld 40.000 Macedonians in 1948. So let us make simple Mathematics
    240000-40000 = 200.000 ! They have natural increase of population and now they are between 450.000 – 500.000 pure MACEDONIANS! And not to mention mixed marriages and they who are brainwashed from your mixed tribe state invented from Brits and Bawarians in 1820 for its interest against the turks and control of mediteranean (no nation,or language),so the total number will be 750,000 Macedonians in “Greece”

    RIGHTS NOW!

    “Abecedar – the primer for the Macedonian children in the Aegean part of Macedonia, printed by order of the Greek authorities in 1925, in the Macedonian language with Latin letters (not with Cyrillic, as in the Macedonian alphabet), according to the decision of the Association of the Nations, immediately forbidden by the “Greek” authorities”

    The League of Nations used this statement to ask, in writing, the following question: the Greek government claims that this population does not speak Serbian, but does not say “what the language they speak in is”. At the last moment before the deadline the Greek government replied by cable saying that “the population of these villages knows neither the Serbian nor the Bulgarian language and speaks nothing but a Slav-Macedonian idiom”.

    Thus the “Greek” government officially recognized for the first time the separate national entity of the Macedonians within “Greece’s” borders, which is also clearly confirmed by the pure language of the pnmer, ABECEDAR, published in “Greece”.
    SLAVS (MACEDONIANS) WERE ALWAYS HERE!

    By 1935, the IMRO organisation in Greece was working closely with the Communist Party of Greece KKE Indeed on 3 July 1935,the KKE newspaper,Rizospastis,reported a statement issued by the IMRO United organisation in Edesa Voden and signed by G.Slavos
    We Macedonians also insist on not being called Bulgarians, for we are neither Bulgarians, nor Serbs, nor Greeks, but Macedonians. We invite all Macedonians to join the ranks of the IMRO and all of us together will fight for a free Macedonia.

    However, page 182 of the volume of census data for 1920 (published in 1929) categories are reported for mother tongue:
    This is official census data published by the Greek government wherein, not only is the Macedonian language documented by the census authority but it is rightly distinguished from Bulgarian and Serbian.
    G. Houliarakis (Geografiki, dioikitiki kai plithismiaki ekseliksi tis Ellados tom G’ page 182

    We declare that we shall struggle for our freedom under the lead-ership of the Communist Party of Greece and that we demand to have our schools where the Macedonian language will be taught, and we also demand that we should not be called Bulgarians because we are not Bulgarians, nor are we Serbs or Greeks, but only Macedonians
    we shall all together struggle for a free Macedonia.
    Per the Group from Voden G Slavos (Rizospastis, July 3, 1935.)

    We Are Neither Bulgarians, Nor Greek! We Are Macedonians. Along the northern periphery of capitalist Greece, a whole nation groans under the heavy boot of two-fold, economic and national exploitation and pressure; that is the Macedonian people. The Greek capitalists, landowners and generals, using fire and sword, try to “hellenize”these people and make them slaves.

    aahahahahahh

    MACEDONIA FOREVER

    Nineteenth century Greeks did not regard the Macedonians as people of the same ethnicity (Politis 1993:36; Dimaras 1958; Karagatsis, 1952).(1) Greeks in the late eighteen hundreds and earl nineteenth century viewed the Macedonians as conquerors of Greece. Only after the Megale Idea took up roots in the Greek scholarship, did Greeks embark on providing and securing ‘evidence’ for their new political vision; which was born and bred from the limbs of the rapidly decaying Ottoman Empire.

    Politis (1993: 40-42) cites fourteen examples from the Greek literature of the 1794-1841 period in which the ancient Macedonians are not considered to be part of the ancient Greek world. Karagatsis said that ‘it was an illusion to think that ancient Macedonians were Greeks’.

    JUST AN ILLUSION,up up up ahaaaaa,ILLUSION!
