History of Slovakia the Struggle 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic book offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date history of Slovakia, from its establishment on the Danubian Plain to the present. While paying tribute to Slovakia's resilience and struggle for survival, it describes contributions to European civilization in the Middle Ages; the development of Slovak consciousness in response to Magyarization; its struggle for autonomy in Czechoslovakia after the Treaty of Versailles; its resistance, as the first Slovak Republic, to a Nazi-controlled Europe; its reaction to Communism; and the path that led to the creation of the second Slovak Republic. Now fully updated to the present day, the book examines the vagaries of Slovak post-Communist politics that led to Slovakia's membership in NATO and the European Union.

Book News Annotation:

Kirschbaum (international studies, York U., Canada) concluded his account in the 1995 first edition with the 1993 creation of the second Slovak Republic. The entry of Slovakia into the European Union in May 2004 provided the impetus for him to examine how that event was connected to the history of the country and its people. He begins with the geography and the first record of human habitation in the territory.
