Publisher SPN (Slovak Republic2002)
This book is in English
The book (350 pages) is divided into two sections.
The first section, the calendar, presents
Slovak history from the first evidence about human beings on Slovak
territory up to the events that took place in 1998 with notations
summarizing important historical events and phenomena.
The second section is an encyclopedic
dictionary with three hundred alphabetically arranged entries
characterizing the most important concepts, institutions, and events. It
includes genealogical tables of the longest reigning dynasties on the
Hungarian throne, a list of all rulers and presidents of states to which
the lands of Slovakia belonged (Great Moravia, the Kingdom of Hungary,
Austria, Czechoslovakia and Slovakia).
Six historians from Bratislava prepared
this chronology of Slovak history
(J. Bartl, V. Segeš, V. Čičaj, D. Škvarna-main author, R. Letz
and M. Kohútová).
It is said that the way to the knowledge of
the present leads through a knowledge of the past. Therefore, this book
can be recommended to all readers, who are interested in the Slovak
history as well as to those, who are involved in genealogical research.
We can only welcome this book trying to
fill the gap because until now, Slovak history was not sufficiently
covered and to a very limited extent in the English language.
Hard cover, 350 pages, the
book is 7 x 9 1/4 inches
