The politics of history in Croatia and Slovakia in the 1990s

This book compares the politics of history and the national identity-building ideologies used by the ruling parties in Croatia and Slovakia in the 1990s. Drawing upon various sources, The Politics of History in Croatia and Slovakia in the 1990s shows that the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) led by Franjo Tudman and the Movement for Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) led by Vladimir Meciar gained and maintained power by convincing the electorate that they were the best state-creating agents and, hence, the "saviors of the nation", which could protect their nations against the resentment that was exercised by the "senior" partners - the Serbs and the Czechs - towards the respective Croats' and Slovaks' claims for sovereignty.
