The Slovak Autonomy Movement, 1935-1939

By Dorothea H. El Mallakh
East European Quarterly, 1979
260 pp.

The underlying theme of this monograph is the continuity and constancy of the Slovak demand for autonomy, represented during these years principally but not solely by the Hlinka party. Prague badly underestimated it and Hitler easily exploited it. The book is enriched by the use of archival material from Prague, surprisingly provided by the post-1968 government.
