      During the last century, the Slovak mass media used a variety of ways
      to foster a sense of nation among the people of Slovakia. In return,
      public opinion and the Slovak people’s responses influenced the forms
      that the media took and the way that it operated throughout the
      20th-century: under Hungary, during the interwar republic, in the
      wartime Slovak state, during postwar democracy, in the communist period
      through the "Prague" Spring, under post-1968 communism, and in the
      1989-92 coda.

      Owen Johnson is an Associate Professor in the Indiana University School
      of Journalism, Bloomington, IN, where he specializes in the
      sociocultural roles and functions of journalism in Central and East
      European societies, and in selected topics in U.S. journalism history.
