Subject: [S-R] book discussion: Illustrated Slovak History
For those who are interested (I don't think this has been mentioned
There's going to be a chapter-by-chapter discussion of the book:
_Illustrated Slovak History: A Struggle for Sovereignty in Central
Europe_, on the Slovak-World yahoo group, starting the day after
Labor Day. Please feel free to join Slovak-World (if you're not
already a member--many of you are) and participate in the discussion,
or just read what others are saying, if you like.
Illustrated Slovak History
A Struggle for Sovereignty in Central Europe
By Anton Spiesz, Michael Kopanic, Albert Devine, David Daniel, Ivan
Edited by Dr. Ladislaus J. Bolchazy et alii.
Epilogue by Dusan Caplovic (President of the Slovak Academy of
Translated by Joseph J. Palus, Jr.
Details below; they are all cut&paste from other peoples' emails
about it, mostly from Helen Fedor and Greg Kopchak:
"A little while ago, we were talking about Slovak history and the
need to read more to get a better understanding of how/why things
happened the way they did. I know it wouldn't be a complete course,
but would anyone be interested in reading _Illustrated Slovak
History: A Struggle for Sovereignty in Central Europe_, chapter by
chapter, and discussing it on the list, like we did the short stories
The book's available in softcover from the publisher <http://
www.bolchazy. com/prod. php?cat=slovak& id=4266> for $41+shipping. The
hardcover version costs $80+shipping.
Amazon.com carries the softcover for $34.85 and no postage <http://

Alibris.com, an online used and remainered book seller, has softcover
copies starting at $31.35+shipping. "
"I thought we could start discussing it right after Labor Day, giving
interested parties the month of August to get the book. The first
two chapters are pretty short, so I think that a week of discussing
each would be about right. I'm hoping that we'll use the text as a
starting point and bring info from other sources (covering the same
time period) to the discussion. Info in other sources might
complement, reinforce, or even contradict what we find in this book.
Let's start the day after Labor Day. We can discuss chapters 1 and 2
that week; they're both short."
"Dr. Bolchazy has sample pages of the book available at...
http://www.bolchazy .com/prod. php?cat=slovak& id=4266&add= sam
if anyone wants to check it out."
"I invited Dr. Lou Bolchazy, Publisher of Illustrated Slovak History: A
Struggle for Sovereignty in Central Europe, to join the group."
