Overview

The Historical Dictionary of Slovakia offers in its second edition an up to date series of cross-referenced dictionary entries on Slovak political, social, and economic development since the creation of the second Slovak Republic in 1993 until its admission into the European Union in 2004. It includes all of the political actors: the presidents, prime ministers, and party leaders, and many leading academics and cultural personalities, including those from the national minorities. It also contains entries on the various institutions of the Slovak Republic like the judiciary, the armed forces, the media, and parliamentary committees as well as entries that explain Slovakia's position and role in international organizations like NATO and the European Union. The historical survey explains how Slovakia, in its post-Communist transformation, was almost excluded, but in the end became a full member of these two institutions. To the entries on Slovak history of the first edition, the second edition adds personalities, concepts, and events that marked this nation's struggle for survival over the centuries. The bibliography is expanded and contains the most recent works in Western languages on Slovakia as well as the most recent seminal publications in the Slovak language on various aspects of Slovakia's history. This second edition enables the scholar and the researcher to have easy access to the background and to the role of most of the institutions and personalities of contemporary Slovakia.

Editorial Reviews

March 2008 American Reference Books Annual
this is an important update, particularly in view of Slovakia's recent admission to the European Union.
4/1/2007 Booklist
...the book provides A-Z entries for people, events, institutions, and places that figure prominently in this complicated history. The extensive bibliography has been updated to include titles published within the last few years.
Canadian Slavonic Papers, March 2009, Vol LI, No 1 - Susan Mikula
Excellent coverage of recent political developments in Slovakia.... The Historical Dictionary of Slovakia should be in every major library. It is an extremely useful tool for beginning researchers and students.... An excellent reference, providing a brief but clear overview of the various movements, players, parties and programs, all of which are essential to understanding the trajectory of Slovak historical development.... The Dictionary is particularly effective in shedding light on the religious, linguisitic and cultural figures and movements of pre-nineteenth century Slovakia.... A major contribution to the study of the Slovaks and Slovakia.
Reference Reviews
This smart and handy volume on the new institutions and personalities of contemporary Slovakia will be a useful addition.
