Василије Ђерић, “Неколико главних питања из етнографије Старе Србије и Маћедоније”, 1922

Књига Василија Ђерића “Неколико главних питања из етнографије Старе Србије и Маћедоније” представља етнолошку синтезу која садржи обиље података о присуству словенског и бугарског имена на балкану и о присуству српског имена у Повардарју (углавном у подручју данашање БЈРМ. Приложена је полемичка критика усмерена на дела бугарског и другог порекла којима се настојало доказати искључиво бугарски карактер Словена у Повардарју. Подаци дани у овој књизи, засновани на коришћењу извора, јасно потврђују српско присуство у БЈРМ у позном Средњем веку и за време отоманске владавине, насупрот тренду у савременој историографији БЈРМ да се српско присуство и историја у БЈРМ маргинализују или не спомињу уопште.

Đoko Slijepčević, “The Macedonian Question”, Chicago 1958

The monograph “The Macedonian Question” by the exiled Serbian historian and Germanist Đoko Slijepčević, published in 1958 in Chicago represents a classic synthesis of historical and ethnological aspects of Slavic identity in Povardarje, with emphasis on its Serbian aspect which is often neglected in modern-day discourse due to the far greater quantity of Bulgarian and Pseudomacedonian publications in English language dealing with the issue. Although it is dated in some aspects and deficient in review of archeological material and the issue of Hellenism of Macedonia proper, author’s reliance on well-established fact and erudition with regard to Povardarje’s history, especially the medieval period, emergence of 19th century Bulgarian Revival on the area of FYROM and Ecclesiastic History, including the early separatism of what is today known as the so-called “Macedonian Orthodox Church” make this book a worthy addition in every historical research.
