This engaging and insightful book is the first historical study in English to portray the lives and fates of Slovak women. These seven life stories, ranging from the late nineteenth century to the present day, expose the often cruel political history of Slovakia through the eyes of prominent women whose acts and deeds on behalf of their fellow citizens remain unforgotten in the Slovak collective mind. Four chapters and three oral history interviews offer captivating insight into how the situation of Slovak women in society has changed during a most eventful period. The book will be complemented by a second volume on Czech women due out from Press in the fall of 2015. ibidem
