A provocative history of the party that first called for Slovak autonomy, then headed the first Slovak Republic. The author acknowledges both the heavy hand of Czechs in Prague and the uncompromising actions of Father Hlinka and his followers. Although Hlinka's party eventually chose cooperation with Hitler's Reich over a democratic Czechoslovakia, the author also recognizes the ambivalence of some Slovak leaders to this arranged marriage. Both Slovak and 'Czechoslovak' nationalism contained either autocractic or authoritarian impulses that ultimately led both to catastrophe.
