Neki od njih su kulturni, neki su rezultat različitog razvoja susednih republika pod tuđim imperijama, a neki su pothranjivani u književnim delima i rodoljubivoj lirici u kojoj su komšije predstavljane kao bezdušni krvoloci.

This book is the last in the series and covers years 1994 to 1996 and 2002. So much happened I didn’t have enough time to write, but I certainly had the ideas. In 2002 I wrote 1 song. That’s all I wrote. And I’m surprised I wrote that. It was the last song I wrote and all of them were my practice for storytelling in four verses, a chorus, and a bridge for much bigger and better things.
