The text of the book is voluminous and it is composed of a preface, introduction, three parts, epilogue and an index (personarum & rerum). The Preface outlines how the project was born, the conditions under which it was carried out as well as the objectives it is aimed at. The Introduction is preceded by a List of participants in the project, the Contents of the book, as well as the List of acronyms that appear in the text. The Introduction shows the attractiveness of the name “Macedonia” to the students and their wish to help their country. The First part contains historical, cultural, political, commercial and legal aspects of the subject of the dispute. The Second part outlines analysis of the proposals related to the name as well as analysis of the issues related to the war that Macedonia was faced with in 2001. The Third part gives documents that are relevant to the dispute over the name and the Greek veto imposed at the Bucharest Summit on 3 April 2008. The Epilogue contains the conclusions drawn by the students in relation to the project. It has been approved of by all the participants following a debate that was organized; during the debate all the participants were given the opportunity to make specific remarks and comments. The Index contains approximately 560 names of people who appear in the text. The First and the Second part are divided into several sections. Each section contains source texts, student essays and talks (interviews). The texts elucidate the aspects of the dispute, the essays outline students’ views, while the interviews explain certain issues better through vivid conversation, description of the interlocutor and his/her attitude towards the topic and the students. The documents contained in the third part have been chronologically arranged ranging from 1913 to 2009. The publication of this book in English ensures that the debate over Macedonia is experienced in other milieus, especially in the universities in Greece and in Europe. That is the reason why the Teachers’ Council of the Faculty of law “Iustinianus Primus” (State University "Ss. Ciril an Methodius") in Skopje, with the Resolution No. 02-300/6 (from May 05, 2008), approved of the printing of this book.
