coupla websites of interest
- I came across a couple of websites that listmembers might find interesting.
This first is the on-line Encyclopedia of 1848 Revolutions. It has an
introduction and a large number of papers by various authors/scholars on
many different aspects of 1848 ("year of revolutions"). I noticed the
following papers: Claims of the Slovak Nation, Congress of the Slavs in
Prague, Prague June Uprising, Prague Upheavals of 1848, Slovak Peasant
Revolt, Slovak Newspapers. http://www.ohiou.edu/~Chastain/index.htm I
found this while trying to find info on the potato plague in Europe (same
time period), but most info seems to focus on Ireland, even though it
affected Europe also.
While putting away some periodicals, I glanced through a 3-year-old issue
of Rocenka. It has an article on Czech/Slovak internet radio and TV
stations. The most useful URL they gave is probably http://www.comfm.com ;
On the home page, click on "Live TV" (in the upper middle part of the
homepage). This will bring up a page listing TV stations by country; click
on Europe, and you'll go to a page that lists European countries; click on
Slovakia, and choose a station/program! Practice your Slovak--easier than
listening to BBC in Slovak, because they don't speak so damn fast, and
since it's video as well as audio, you can pick up a little bit from body

This book is in English
The book (350 pages) is divided into two sections.
The first section, the calendar, presents Slovak history from the first
evidence about human beings on Slovak territory up to the events that took
place in 1998 with notations summarizing important historical events and
The second section is an encyclopedic dictionary with three hundred
alphabetically arranged entries characterizing the most important concepts,
institutions, and events. It includes genealogical tables of the longest
reigning dynasties on the Hungarian throne, a list of all rulers and
presidents of states to which the lands of Slovakia belonged (Great
Moravia, the Kingdom of Hungary, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Slovakia).
Six historians from Bratislava prepared this chronology of Slovak history
(J. Bartl, V. Sege, V. i aj, D. kvarna-main author, R. Letz and M. Kohútová).
It is said that the way to the knowledge of the present leads through a
knowledge of the past. Therefore, this book can be recommended to all
readers, who are interested in the Slovak history as well as to those, who
are involved in genealogical research.
We can only welcome this book trying to fill the gap because until now,
Slovak history was not sufficiently covered and to a very limited extent in
the English language.
