National Context and Ethnocentrism

Main Article Content

Ivan Simko


 In this survey article, the author reviews three recent works concerning Slovak history. They criticize the idea of a ›national revival‹ and present the history of the national movement as a later construct omitting the variety of contradicting ideologies which propelled it. By introducing a broader perspective, they show how an isolated tradition of thought can become comprehensible or relevant outside of its self-imposed cultural borders.
