Bútorová Zora

Bútora Martin, Bútorová Zora, Gyárfášová Oľga, Ivantyšyn Michal, Krivý Vladimír, Velšic Marián

IVO, Bratislava, 1998


Edited by Zora Bútorová, the publication analyzes developments of the public opinion and value orientations of Slovak citizens since the fall of communism. It examines the extent to which people in Slovakia have embraced values that form part of democratic political culture, how they perceive the contemporary political reality, how they decipher the attitudes and behaviour of politicians and political parties, how they interpret Slovakia’s past, what thoughts and values appeal to them and how do they picture Slovakia’s desirable foreign policy direction. The principal source of information for the book was a series of cyclical public opinion polls carried out since the beginning of the 1990s. The most recent source of data was an extensive sociological survey carried out by the Institute for Public Affairs in October 1997.
