Slovak History: Chronology & Lexicon
The history of Slovakia is part of the rich tapestry of the course of human events at the geographical and strategic crossroads of Europe. Yet, very little contemporary scholarship on Slovak history exists in English or is readily accessible to North American and Western European readers. This title thus fills an important gap in historiography and knowledge of events throughout Central Europe over the last fourteen centuries.
