by Valentin Boiadzhiev

ANNOTATION

The book is continuation of the first volume published in 2013. It presents little known facts and events about the history of the Third Bulgarian Country (from 1878 to the present day). Some of them remained in the zone of silence for the official history; others are buried in the dirt of decades past, forgotten even by professional researchers. The events of the old Bulgaria are recreated through the images of popular politicians, writers, actors, musicians, artists, journalists and the turns of history. The book follows the Bulgarian history with no hesitation, the delusions of its characters, their rise and fall in the public and personal scene. The lives of hundreds of Bulgarians are shown through facts and documents, people who have left traces in the wild and unforgettable twentieth century.

Proizkhodut na Bulgarite i nachaloto na bulgarskata durzhava i bulgarskata tsurkva
                Proizkhodut na Bulgarite i nachaloto na bulgarskata durzhava i bulgarskata tsurkva
by Gancho Tsenov

ANNOTATION

Dr. Gancho Tsenov (1870-1949) was a Bulgarian historian who researched mostly in the area of the Bulgarian history in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages. He was the founder of the autochthonous theory for the origin of the Bulgarian people which he presented in his major work "Proizkhodut na bulgarite i nachalo na bulgarskata durzhava i bulgarskata tsurkva" (Origin of the Bulgarians and Beginning of the Bulgarian Country and Bulgarian Church). His hypothesis was that the Bulgarian people was formed by Hun-Bulgarians and Goth whom he thought that they were old Thracians-Illirians and Celts-Scythians and whom in historical time were autochthonous (local) European peoples from the Herodotous (European) Scythia. His theory was not well accepted by the academic circles. The present book is a new edition and its aim is to remind us his theory and that it might be the true one about the origin of the Bulgarian people!

Pogromut nad trakiiskite bulgari prez 1913 g. Razorenie i etnichesko iztreblenie
                Pogromut nad trakiiskite bulgari prez 1913 g. Razorenie i etnichesko iztreblenie
by Delcho Poriazov

ANNOTATION

The second edition of the book by Prof. Delcho Poriazov was published with the 100th anniversary of the Balkan Wars (1912-1913). The book is devoted to the 150th anniversary from the birth of acad. Liubomir Miletich – a chairman (1926-1937) of the Bulgarian Academy of Science. In his way, "led mostly from deep feeling of brother compassion" to the fate of the Bulgarians in the area of Thrace, he held a private investigation. Thus he collected and analyzed a huge empiric material. Moreover – stressed Miletich – "all data I checked on all sides and that is why I can calmly to say that they contain the same truth". Revealed truth is shocking. That what happened to the Bulgarians in Thrace during the Turkish re-occupation in 1913, the academician determined as: "desolation", "rout", "human slaughter", "the most horrifying killings the Bulgarians experienced". But according Prof. Delcho Poriazov the real phrase which reflected the contents of the tragic events in 1913 pictured by acad. Liubomir Miletich was found a decade after his death in the UN decision: "Crime against the humanity – genocide". /Acad. Georgi Markov/

Putevoditel za osmanska Bulgariia
                Putevoditel za osmanska Bulgariia
by Dimana Trankova, Antoni Georgiev, Khristo Matanov

ANNOTATION

This book is for anyone with an interest in Jewish history in Eastern Europe in general and Bulgaria in particular. Bulgaria, one of Europe's least known lands, famously did not report about 48,000 Jews during the Second World War. Many Bulgarians now extol this as a heroic deed, possibly omitting to mention the fate of 11,343 Jews from Aegean Thrace, Vardar Macedonia and Pirot who were sent to concentration camps by the pro-Nazi Kingdom of Bulgaria. Similarly to other countries in Eastern Europe, history is being interpreted according to whoever is in power and does the talking. The debate, if there is any, focuses on who is to take the credit for the rescue: the Communist Party, the Orthodox Church, a bunch of forthright MPs who openly opposed the planned deportations, or the power of Bulgaria's civil society. These questions generate other questions. If the Bulgarians were so good to their Jews during the war, why were thru so few Jews left in the Bulgaria of the Warsaw Pact? What happened to their heritage, a remnant of at least 18 centuries of Jewish presence in these lands? "A Guide to Jewish Bulgaria" will take you to the relatively well-known Jewish heritage sites in Sofia, Plovdiv, Samokov, Pazardzhik, Ruse and Shumen, but will also detour off the beaten track to the lesser and sometimes unexpected sites of Jewish interest in Vidin, Lom, Silistra, Dobrich, Varna, Burgas, Yambol, Stara Zagora, Dupnitsa, Kyustendil, Gotse Delchev and many others. Richly illustrated with superb photography and voicing independent research and opinion, "A Guide to Jewish Bulgaria" is designed to be a journey through both territory and time: illuminating the backgrounds while directing through the topography. Many of the monuments described are hard to find and in various stages of disrepair. Some are poignant, others are stomach-churning. But once discovered, they will hold a reward as they will open up the gateways to a fascinating if largely forgotten part of Europe's Jewish heritage.

Podlite vremena
                Podlite vremena
by Edvin Sugarev

ANNOTATION

Second supplemented edition. "I called 2013's months "sneaky days". And I don't think I have mistaken – because the meanness and audacity of the politicians in Bulgaria were its marks. And fortunately they were not only they. Because this year were a birth one. Because it marks the aweaken of the Bulgarians who were fallen asleep in a deep dream – and realized that they are citizens. Because these months of protests proved that the sensitivity of the young ones is not blunted – and that there is hope Bulgaria to become a normal country. And that the same "sneaky days: by paradox way pointed the time in which the Bulgarians realized the meaning of civil courage, of the solidarity and dignity, of freedom." /the author/

Podlite vremena 2: Koi
                Podlite vremena 2: Koi
by Edvin Sugarev

ANNOTATION

"This book is an effort to look in that mirror – in the mirror of the sneaky days from 2013 and 2014 – meaning from the moment in which the question "Who?" became actual in the Bulgarian society. I titled the book exactly with this question because it is emblematic for the sneaky days in which we live even today. It sounded all the time on streets and squares and politicians and statesmen clogged their ears with guilty consciences… And that is why the written in this book is a modest attempt to give an answer of this so hated from the communist rulers question – an answer of that who lied our faith, who replaced our present and who ruined the Bulgarian chances for the future. I say that this question has a very concrete though collective answer. And that the responsibility for the Bulgarian failures is very hard to be forgiven. /The Author/ Edvin Sugarev lifts the veil of the Bulgarian politics – lightening its marionette nature – without forgiving of any Bulgarian government which in the years of transition betrayed the Bulgarian national interests, the financial affairs of the red oligarchy; the illegal bank activity; secret reports; scandalous deals with majority shares of organized criminal groups etc. – in a book from the kitchen of the events.

Balkanite - minno pole. Razmirniiat zaden dvor na Evropa
                Balkanite - minno pole. Razmirniiat zaden dvor na Evropa
by Olaf Ihlau, Walter Mayr

ANNOTATION

The "Balkans" from the beginning of the 19th century - with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire - is a restless region, constantly posing a danger to the European security order. The Sovietization of large parts of south-eastern Europe after the Second World War had feigned a deceptive calm. After the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the violent breakup of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is now home to the old patterns of perception again: the Balkans as a minefield. The contemporary German historians - Olaf Ihlau and Walter Mayr has made a precise and masterly written report for this "troubled backyard of Europe" which shows the specific characteristics of life in the region and make a clear vision for what happens when smoldering old hostilities flare up again. This present book is the Bulgarian translation of their work originally published as "Minenfeld Balkan: Der unruhige Hinterhof Europas".

ANNOTATION

This monograph is the result of long lasting researches in the area of the ministerial constitutional-penalty liability. The book answer of these questions: Which were the ministers of the cabinet of Dr. Vasil Radoslavov (a Prime-minister of Bulgaria in the period 1913-1918) – were they political criminals, national traitors, real patriots, weak politicians or just victim of circumstances? But probably none of these characteristics is not accurate enough? Which on of the minister criminal acts done in that time has lasting importance and might be met in today's Bulgarian "modernity"? Does repeat the mechanisms of benefiting the power in time? Is necessary increased criminal liability for those who rule the country? What should be the attitude to political opponent who lost?

Khudozhnikut Angel Panaiotov
                Khudozhnikut Angel Panaiotov
by Angel Panaiotov

ANNOTATION

Angel Panaiotov – a man with skills and talent which put him among the first names of the European masters of art - with his asceticism but with his magic hands. The fate was extremely cruel to him. But he was not more merciful to himself nether. On his youngest years he had his happy moments but then began sufferings and nightmares in his life. He knew only one meaning to overcome them – by drawing consistently – with no stop as the way he breaths. This album cannot make even a small picture for his complete work – it collects in occasion undamaged works which are neither signed, nor dated. Let at least it preserve the memory for an artist who – in spite his tragic fate – found a salvation from this world in another – in the world of art.

Istoriia na plemenata v Iugozapadna Trakiia prez I khil. pr. Khr.
                Istoriia na plemenata v Iugozapadna Trakiia prez I khil. pr. Khr.
by Petur Delev

ANNOTATION

Summary in English. This book is devoted to the history of the ancient tribes in an area provisionally called here South-Western Thrace and including mainly the territories around the rivers Struma and Mesta, the ancient (and modern Greek) Strymon and Nestos. The project was started as an intended continuation of the excellent treatise of Fanula Papazoglu on the central Balkan tribes in pre-Roman times, transferred to an adjacent region to the south which could also be defined as „central Balkan". The main object of investigation are the tribes with their individual history; many of the major historical events and processes in the area like the Greek colonization or the invasions and conquests of Persians, Macedonians, Celts or Romans will be treated only as far as they had a perceptible influence on the local tribal communities or gave the occasion for the preservation of particular pieces of information regarding them. The problems of the ethnic origin and affiliation of the tribes in the studied area have been given considerable attention, leading in many cases to contradicting attributions (Thracian, Paeonian, Illyrian, Greek, Macedonian, Phrygian or Pelasgian) and even to absurd constructions like the „Thraco-Macedonian tribes“ so firmly entrenched in numismatic literature. The present treatise is therefore focussed mainly on an attempt to collect as fully as possible, to analyze and systematize all the available data from literary sources, mainly ancient Greek but also Latin and Byzantine, relating to the history of the tribes of South-Western Thrace; epigraphical, numismatical and archaeological data are used where available with the necessary caution and discretion. As the attentive reader will easily discover, the information available for the reconstruction of tribal histories in the area is very scanty and fragmented, and is concentrated chronologically mainly in two period: in the final Archaic and Classical periods (from the late sixth to the middle of the fourth century B.C.), and in the age of the imposition of Roman domination in the Balkans (from the second century B.C. to the middle of the first century A.D.).

The major topic of part 2 is the justification of a semiotic model of word-sign. Special attention is paid to various systematic-structural relations in lexis.

by Plamena Dimitrova-Racheva

ANNOTATION

“To study and to popularize the work by Boris Georgiev from Varna to me turned to a mission to which I devoted many years of my life. This book collects, translate and systematize the epistle heritage of the painter. The collection includes texts from his memories, letters and notes in chronological order. In them you seldom will find Boris Georgiev to write about his life but more often about professional events. His early letters usually are postcards from the time when travelled to Odessa and his migration to Trentino Alps as a free painter. Very curious are the texts connected to his studying in Bavarian Royal Academy in the city of Munich, his first “pilgrimage” travels in Europe and in North Africa when he formed his work worldview and philosophy. (…) The book gives a possibility for an exciting journey through time with the resurrected spiritual messages from words and images which left us the “Pastor of Dreams” as called him his contemporaries.”/The author/

by Co.

ANNOTATION

The report “Inovatsii.bg” presents annually reliable estimation of the innovation potential of the Bulgarian economy and of the condition and the possibilities for development of the Bulgarian innovation system. It makes suggestions for improving the social policy regarding the innovations in Bulgaria and in the EU by relying to the last theoretical and empirical studies worldwide but also by taking in account the specific economical, political, cultural and institutional frame in which the Bulgaria’s innovational system develops. In the last 8 years “Inovatsii.bg” made a number of concrete suggestions for improving of the innovational policy and practice in Bulgaria which were supported by the business and scientific sector. The lack of concrete stable actions from the Bulgarian governments on these suggestions – in spite of their engagements in the process on the higher political levels tells that there is a serious institutional lack in the development and applying of policies on that area. The accent in the current issue is the analysis of the innovation potential on the sector of pharmacy.

Ti si tova
                Ti si tova
by Rumen Chorbadzhiiski

ANNOTATION

Years ago many strange things happened to me which I couldn't explain. But that was not bad but the fact that there was no one close to me to explain me what I experienced. That is why I decided to find the truth alone. That impulse drew me in reading of esoteric and spiritual literature. Parallel to gaining knowledge to various philosophical movements I developed certain abilities which I did not suspect I had. The knowledge I gained I applied for healing people. The results were stunning, but personally my satisfaction was that certain illness disappeared – the question I wanted to answer was: "What is in the basis of the imbalance in the human nature?". How to reach to the reasons of this imbalance and of course to the illness itself which is a consequence of that? With the time I realized that knowledge is just type of information but cognition is something very different, deeper. If someone knows how to make a musical instrument that does not mean that he knows how to play with it and less how to compose. The same is with the knowledge. If you have information about certain energy structure that does not mean you can apply it or to see its composition in the human body… /the author/

Svetilishte na trakiiskiia konnik krai Sostra
                Svetilishte na trakiiskiia konnik krai Sostra
by Co.

ANNOTATION

Parallel text in Bulgarian and English. In August 2012, the National Museum of History funded archaeological explorations in Kalugerskoto locality, on the land of the village of Leshnitsa, in the region of Lovech. The archaeologists were led by Assoc. Prof. Ivan Christov with Assoc. Prof. Sergey Torbatov as consultant and Bilyana Ivanova and Stilian Ivanov as deputy team leaders. Villagers from Leshnitsa and Lomets as well as students from the University of Library Studies and Information Technologies, Sofia joined the work. The digs came to continue the long years of archaeological explorations of the roadside Sostra complex, situated on the Roman cursus publicus from Oescus to Philippopolis. The chance the site to be studied thoroughly, to establish its dating and planning and come to a satisfactory scientific interpretation predetermined the necessity for a comprehensive publication of the results. The fact that the shrine at Sostra is among just a few thoroughly studied religious places related to the veneration of one of the most popular Roman deities, the Thracian Horseman, shows the original contribution of the lines below. The research is not of regional scope alone. It successfully fits in the whole range of problems regarding the exploration of out-of-town sanctuaries of the Roman days in the Balkans. Structurally, the book includes several chapters on the history of the explorations, the planning and the interpretation of the offerings found in the sanctuary (coins, votive tablets, jewels, earthenware and osseous remains). The text is accompanied by abundant photos and plans of the stages of the explorations. The movable cultural artifacts acquired in the course of the explorations were handed over to the Museum of Traditional Crafts and Applied Arts in the town of Trojan, where all the finds from Sostra castellum and its immediate vicinity as well as from the region of Trojan as a whole are kept. The book offers an opportunity for the general public to get familiarized with part of the riches of the museum in Trojan.

Uchiteliat. Retrospektivna izlozhba na Mikhail Krustev (1877-1956) / The Teacher. Retrospective Exhibition of Michail Krastev (1877-1956)
                Uchiteliat. Retrospektivna izlozhba na Mikhail Krustev (1877-1956) / The Teacher. Retrospective Exhibition of Michail Krastev (1877-1956)
by Plamen Petrov

ANNOTATION

Artist of the small size format, excellent portraitist and good landscape painter, Mihail Krustev, although living and working in the period between the two world wars, turned out to be related to art in Bulgaria in the first decade of the XX century. In the times of active and diverse artistic life Krustev stands somewhat detached from both the impact of secession, and the influence of expressionism and Neue Sachlichkeit. His works are not a turning point in art, but they are lyrical, unpretentious, spontaneous and light – exciting today, too. Maybe their charm lies exactly in their simplicity. Mihail Krustev, the first art teacher of the patron of the gallery Vaska Emanuilova, was born in the town of Pirot. He is brother of Dr.Krustyo Krustev – one of the most prominent figures in the sphere of culture during the Third Bulgarian Kingdom, and founder of the circle Thought. Having completed his primary education in Sofia, he headed to Berlin, where he studied Architecture, and later on Graphics at Universitat der Kunste Berlin. Not finishing his education, he returned to Bulgaria and joined the National School of Drawing in the special painting course of Yaroslav Veshin. Despite his solid artistic training, he never wholly immersed in the world of art, but devoted himself to the teacher calling. He taught his first drawing lessons to Vaska Emanuilova, Vera Lukova, Boris Angelushev and many other prominent Bulgarian artists. He was never able to realize his solo exhibition. That is why this exhibition is the first ever attempt to fully illuminate and research the artistic heritage of one of the pioneers in Bulgarian graphic art – Mihail Krustev. The exhibition includes works from the collections of the Sofia City Art Gallery, the Bulgarian National Museum of Fine Arts, Plovdiv City Art Gallery, Gallery – Kazanlak, National Literary Museum – Sofia, and Hristina Koleva private collection.

by Ivanka Gergova

ANNOTATION

Text in Bulgarian and Russian. The book is dedicated to an unique manuscript of the rich collection of the National Library "St. St. Cyril and Methodius " in Sofia, Bulgaria. It is a remarkable text of creating and the preservation manuscripts in Bulgaria. This is an illustrated Russian obituary containing 146 sheets and 126 full-page miniatures. The analysis of the characteristics of the manuscript and watermarked paper allow its dating in the last quarter of the 17-th century. Illustrated obituaries are a typical Russian phenomenon, which has no analogue in other cultural environments. The manuscript is a collection of readings, explaining the tradition of remembrance of the soul, its meaning, short stories about death, sin and the ways of their redemption, for posthumous fate of the soul, and is intended to prepare the reader to live so as to be saved.

Medieval Melnik - From the End of the 12th to the End of the 14th Century: The Historical Vicissitudes of a Small Balkan Town
                Medieval Melnik - From the End of the 12th to the End of the 14th Century: The Historical Vicissitudes of a Small Balkan Town
by Elena Kostova

ANNOTATION

Elena Kostova's Medieval Melnik from the End of the 12th to the End of the 14th Century: The Historical Vicissitudes of a Small Balkan Town makes available to the English-speaking scholars one of the very Jew comprehensive studies of medieval Balkan urban settlements. Using exhaustively the written sources of the period, Kostova deftly integrates information from topography, archaeology, art history, and architecture as well as sheds light on the evolution of Melnik, a small but strategically located urban center in the south-central Balkans during the High and Late Middle Ages. The gist of the account is political history, a dramatic story of the incessant struggle between the three local political heavyweights, Bulgaria, Byzantium, and Serbia, and a series of local magnates, Jor controlling the town. The approach is dictated by the nature of the available evidence, but the scarce sources permit glimpses into Melniks economic, ethnic, and ecclesiastical evolution as well. Although strictly local in scope, the study highlights the characteristics of a typical urban center in the Balkans, and permits comparisons with similar settlements in Byzantium, Catholic Europe, and the Middle East. Students of medieval urbanism and historians interested in the late medieval Balkans will find Kostova s work an instructive contribution to their knowledge of the region and its specifics.

Transformation Always Takes Time and Energy
                Transformation Always Takes Time and Energy
by Pravdoliub Ivanov

ANNOTATION

The works of Pravdoliub Ivanov revolve around phenomena of spatiality in which norms are disrupted and trompe l’oeil effects are inserted into an everyday visual vocabulary. By intermingling public and private moments, the artist transfers private matters into the realm of the gallery or art space, tying in specific architectural tropes as he does so. Ivanov plays with irritating elements: he uses ironic gestures taken from mundane and incidental everyday situations to evoke a heightened awareness for routine encounters that might otherwise often go unnoticed. The juxtaposition of unusual objects and materials forms the basis for Ivanov’s installations, which generally tend to produce uncanny moments for their viewers. In keeping with the Freudian concept of the uncanny, these are phenomena that seem familiar and foreign at the same time. /Walter Seidl/
