The Macedonian Question in the Eves of British Journalists (1899-1919)
By the end of the nineteenth and certainly by the first decade of the twentieth century, governance in Ottoman Macedonia had broken down almost entirely. Armed bands, many in the guise of nationalist movements, robbed and terrorized the civilian population, and pitted one ethnic or religious group against the other. These ethnic conflicts, that gave rise to massacres and terrible suffering, in particular for the peasant population, were exacerbated not only by Ottoman administrative incompetence, but also by the Great Powers, each of which was determined to ensure and promote its own political and commercial interests in the region. This volume gathers together editorials and reports by many noted British journalists and writers of the period, figures whose writings kept the British authorities and the British public informed of the chaos that raged in Macedonia from the late nineteenth century to the end of the First World War.
