Done well, migrant history offers a mirror to the host society, reflecting in another language, and from a fresh perspective, aspects of its national history that are perhaps less historiographically stable than most mainstream historians imagine. Dr Nick Anastastovski has produced a magnificent addition to the canon of Australian migrant history, valuable not only for Macedonians, but for everyone who cares to understand migration as a lived experience.
-- Robert Pascoe, Dean Laureate and Professor of History, Victoria University, Melbourne Pechalba Down Under by Nick Anastasovski is an important work for Macedonians in Australia, anyone with roots from Macedonia and for those who are interested in understanding Macedonian migration. This work comprehensively introduces the reader to the Macedonians and should be read by everyone who has an interest in learning about their Macedonian heritage but also anyone interested in learning about the Macedonians.
