A JOURNAL OF SOUTHEAST EUROPEAN STUDIES * 1992 * Subtitled “Bulgaria Past and Present,” this volume of Balkanistica was published as volume 6 of Indiana Slavic Studies in volume 44 of the Indiana University Russian and East European Series. (Yes, it’s confusing!)

Commentary: This volume was a long time in the making. It represented a transitional phase in the publication history of Balkanistica. No fewer than three editors worked toward its publication, as the editorial, philosophical, scholarly and indeed financial support for the near-24-old journal wavered. Many of the volume’s papers were originally presented at the 1982 Boston meeting of American and Bulgarian scholars. The 259-page volume contains dedications to former Balkanistica editor Kenneth Naylor of The Ohio State University and Michael Boro Petrovich of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
