      Subject: [S-R] book discussion: Illustrated Slovak History

      For those who are interested (I don't think this has been mentioned
      yet):

      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
      Reguli

      Edited by Dr. Ladislaus J. Bolchazy et alii.

      Epilogue by Dusan Caplovic (President of the Slovak Academy of
      Sciences)

      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
      of Timrava?

      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://
      www.amazon.com/ Illustrated- Slovak-History- Struggle- Sovereignty/ dp/
      0865164266/ref= sr_1_81/104- 8767090-4287914?
      ie=UTF8&s=books& qid=1185453893& sr=1-81>.

      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."
