9780865165007: Illustrated Slovak History: A Struggle for Sovereignty in Central Europe

Notes for the English-language edition supplied by Dr. Michael Kopanic. Academic consulting by Martin Votruba, Albert Devine, Milan S. Durica, Frantisek Vnuk, Ivan Reguli, Charles Sabatos, Patrick Romane, John Karch, Adenko G. Alexy et alii. Associate Editing by Joseph J. Palus, Jr., Albert Devine, Patrick Romane and Richard Wood

Who are the Slovaks? What is the Slovak nation? Located in the heart of Europe, the Slovak Republic has emerged an independent and sovereign nation after centuries of struggle. The history of Slovak is part of the rich tapestry of the course of human events at the geographical and strategic crossroads of Europe. Yet, very little contemporary scholarship on Slovak history exists in English or is readily accessible to North American and Western European readers. This title thus fills an important gap in historiography about events throughout Central Europe over the last fourteen centuries. This title presents the history of Slovakia in terms of the latest scholarship and in context of on-going historical debate about Slovak history and its presentation in post-socialist world.

Review:

The publisher fulfills its aims of 'giving the general English-speaking public a book that is inviting to read' while creating a work of Slovak history that 'displays scholarly integrity' by a book which is copiously illustrated (over 300 illustrations) and involved a number of prominent authorities in Slovak history. Fourteen chronological chapters present the path of Slovak history with controversies over the meaning of certain aspects of it raised in the endnotes. The extensive bibliography too points readers to debates and alternate, sometimes conflicting interpretations of the events and persons presented in the main text. With all of the seismic changes going on in Central Europe, including the Balkans, since the fall of the Berlin Wall in the late 1980s, this comprehensive, up-to-date history is to be welcomed by any reader interested in this region which has become crucial in world affairs. The book with its popular and scholarly elements can be taken at different levels, from introductory survey to exposure to open debates assessing finer points of Slovak history. --Henry Berry, book reviewer, Midwest Book Review
