Slovak and Czech


Sixty-one authors of the book deal with developments encountered by Slovak and Czech societies after division of Czechoslovakia. Among them are the representatives of different generations and professions in both countries – historians, political scientists, lawyers, sociologists, economists, psychologists, anthropologists, pedagogues, theologians, writers, journalists, civic activists and bloggers. The book offers a polyphonic and multi-genre testimony of people with different life experiences.

Did independence bring us more democracy and decency in politics? Did it bring more responsibility and civic maturity, stronger rule of law and better economic conditions? Or it is different? Why are we moving just in this direction and where it will lead us? Seeking the answers to these and many other questions, authors share with readers their observations and critical reflections, with hopes and visions for better society.

The book is a loose continuation of previous joint publications of IVO and Kalligram, released in 2010 – Kde sme? Mentálne mapy Slovenska (Where are We? Mental Maps of Slovakia).
