Description

One of Europe's smallest countries, with a population of less than 2 million, Slovenia has an ancient and distinct national culture. It emerged in 1991 after fighting a brief war of independence to leave behind the remnants of Tito's Yugoslavia. Traces of the Slovene language are found in documents of the ninth century, a system of peasant democracy is recorded in medieval times, and a Slovene Bible appeared as early as 1557. This volume provides a comprehensive survey of Slovenia and its people, including details of political, economic, military and cultural life.

Contents

Land and people - the evolution of the "Slovene idea"; self-determination in the Yugoslav incubator; society and culture; the economy; politics; security and foreign policy.
