A Concise History of Slovakia

Elena Mannová (ed.)

The history of Slovakia, capturing the most important events nd connections in the past of a Central European country, covers the basic lines and problem areas of historical development in the present territory of the Slovak Republic. Emphasis is placed on long-term continuity or discontinuity (political systems, elites, historical consciousness and so on), on integration into wider units and exchanges of cultural influences between the individual ethnic groups. The conception of the book opposes the teleological view of Slovak history as the “road to the nation’s own state”.
