From the Publisher
"This book is recommended for academic and larger public libraries."
Cites and evaluates over 600 selected English-language sources on one of Europe's newest countries and oldest nations. Submerged in one empire or another since the 14th century, the Slovenes tore themselves out of disintegrating Yugoslavia in the late 1980s to become an independent democracy of two million people. The articles are arranged by topical sections such as travellers' accounts, history, the constitution and legal system, finance and banking, environment, science and technology, literature, food and drink, publishing and mass media, encyclopedia, and bibliographies. Includes a simple map. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
