Historical Dictionary of Sloveniaby Leopoldina Plut-Pregelj, Plut-Pregelj Leopoldina
Slovenia is a newly independent European state, which until 1991 was a constituent republic of Yugoslavia. Since the collapse of communism and the disintegration of Yugoslavia, Slovenia has established a parliamentary democracy and is building a market economy. "The Historical Dictionary of Slovenia" is a valuable reference work for students, scholars, researchers, and those interested in its economy, politics, and culture. While introducing scholars and researchers to the rich history and culture of the Slovenes, its bibliographies and entries on education, geography, towns and cities, and economic development focus on historical aspects often glossed over in broader works on Yugoslavia. Important Slovenes and events of the last decade are highlighted and discussed extensively. Includes a brief survey of Slovene history, an extensive bibliography, and six maps.
