Actually, Sven, there is at least another book in English
about Slovak history where each time period is written by a
different or one than one different historian: A Concise
History of Slovakia, Studia Historica Slovaca XXI, by the
Historicky ustav SAV and Academic Electronic Press, 2000.
You can get a copy through Daniel Kisha who has created the
Slovak Import Company on the Internet. There are a good
number of libraries in the US that have copies of this
history. This history has a biliography, but not
footnotes/endnotes unfortunately. There is an occasional
English language infelicity, but quite readable, substantive
and scholarly. Sometime in the future, Bolchazy-Carducci
Publishers will be publishing An Illustrated History of
Slovakia that several scholars have prepared for
publication, among them Martin Votruba. I hope this helps--
