Akcepti solene!

Welcome to the Suffled blog. If you don’t know me already, my name’s Shon, I’m from California, but have spent a couple of years in the Balkans. I’ve written a book with the same name as this blog, which you can order from AK Press by clicking on the link to the right. As most of that book was written in 2002, I’m now working on a second edition, to be released on AK in early 2009.

I started this blog in response to requests from friends to explain events surrounding Kosovo’s declaration of independence. With this situation as with the situation in the all of the Balkans, I would like to create a space for humanist, anti-nationalist, and anti-imperialist analysis of current and recent events in the area – priorities which do not always sit easily together in these subjects. In addition, in a communalist spirit, I’d love to open the book’s contents up to feedback before it gets set down in print. So please, please – repond away! And I’d love to hear any questions or critiques about things in the book.

And for those of you wondering, the subject line (“Welcome!”) is not in Albanian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Greek, Hungarian, Ladino, Macedonian, Rromanes, Romanian, Serbian, Slovenian, Turkish, or Vlach. It’s in Esperanto – what else?
