Eugene understands that we history lovers are denied access to the books scholars use as they are too expensive for the average consumer - normally to get scholarly material it'll be at least a grand. He pinpoints important information, has geographical analysis on the events that occurred and most importantly, is open minded. A lot of accessible books are biased on who the Macedonians were; as they normally label them as Greek. He for one has stepped up to this modern-day communistic-like pressure that Historians world wide suffer from, being suppressed by politics. Eugene does in depth analysis to confirm that it is not the case, that the Macedonians were not Greeks but an independent people. This is also undertaken by analysing other scholars who conclude based on inconclusive evidence, which is a very important thing when it comes to history. He also explains the common false use of quotations that enhance this ideal that the Macedonians were Greek through logic.
