Recipient of Silver Medal from the Slovak Foreign Ministry After the collapse of communism, the quest for independence and challenges of democratization created a contest between two powerful forces: Nationalists and Europeanists. Recipient of the Silver Medal (Strieborna Plaketa) from the Slovak Foreign Ministry, this book examines the battles between those rivals by tracking the rise, maintenance, and decline of national movements in two post-communist countries. It provides new insights into nationalism and post-communist transitions and contributes to the debate about whether international actors can influence the course of political change in democratizing states, helping to bring societies "back to Europe."
