      The invited emmigration of Germans into Slovakia/Hungary, seems
      to affected the whole of the area in time. Was there a very large
      difference in technology, education and social norms from the
      more Eastern influenced Slovaks? The book mentions several
      times that the Germans in towns and cities sought to exclude
      Slovaks from any positions of government. Was it more than
      a language difference, a class difference as well? They seemed
      to be at odds. Was that something that was over come with
      time?

      Was agriculture/forrest village life more important to Slovaks, than the
      more
      industrial/trade life of German towns? And the exposure of the
      more 'advanced' Germans lifestyles enlargened their vistas?

      Did the Germans ever come to think of themselves as Hungarians?
      And was the identity of Slovak, or German or Magyar stay fixed
      with the people during the newer invasions by another new
      and different Overlord, the Turks? Did a change in Overlords
      matter to the peasant Slovak at all?

        Dear Claudia,
        I have some old transcribed german books from Spis dealing with the german
        law.
        There the Germans say that the Slavs should not be permitted to court
        functions because they were unreliable and prone to quarrel.
        The Germans were not "advanced" but were advanced and still are.
        Germans were always Germans, but citizens of Hungary. Germans were Germans
        all the time, while Slovaks emerged as Slovaks only in 19th century.
        Caplovic wrote a very nice Ethnography of Slavs living on the territory of
        Slovakia, but the translator changed that to Slovaks.
        The identity of ethnicity is something that can not change with a new
        Overlord. How can you ask such a question? Ethnicity is blood.
        Countries which are made of immigrants are a different story and can not be
        compared to european countries.
