In Blood Ties, Ipek ok. Yosmaoglu explains the origins of this shift from sporadic to systemic and pervasive violence via a social historical past of the “Macedonian Question.”

Yosmaoglu’s account starts off within the aftermath of the Congress of Berlin (1878), whilst a powerful blend of zero-sum imperialism, nascent nationalism, and modernizing states set in movement the occasions that without delay contributed to the outbreak of global warfare I and had results that reverberate to at the present time. targeting the event of the population of Ottoman Macedonia in this interval, she indicates how communal solidarities broke down, time and house have been rationalized, and the immutable type of the kingdom and nationwide id changed polyglot, fluid institutions that had previously outlined people’s experience of collective belonging. The area was once remapped; populations have been counted and relocated. An escalation in symbolic and actual violence undefined, and it used to be via this method that nationalism grew to become an ideology of mass mobilization one of the universal folks.
