Item description for Changes in the Heart of Europe: Recent Ethnographies of Czechs, Slovaks, Roma, and Sorbs (Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society 23). Edited by Timothy McCajor Hall and Rosie Read by Zdenek Salzmann...
From WW II until the Velvet Revolution, few outside anthropologists had access to Czechoslovakia, while only a handful of Czech and Slovak ethnologists published in Western journals. In recent years, anthropological interest in Slovakia and the Czech Republic has increased substantially. This volume brings together a broad sample of recent cutting-edge ethnographic studies by Czech and Slovak ethnographers as well as American and western European anthropologists.
