its protest and hope that a political party, which – in principle – opposes the official establishment, would improve their situation. From discussions with various groups of citizens, we can observe a phenomenon that we call conflicting memories. Translated into the language of common communication, we can state it as follows: people in Slovakia are often unable to allow “the worlds of others” into their minds and, moreover, they are not even willing to admit their existence. This statement is the result of my active participation and participant observation of the

inflation and requests for pay raises, assessments of eligibility for promotions, requests to marry, and reviews of eligibility for pensions. Some of these are clearly professional – they involve the appropriate use of funds, the maintenance of necessary staffing levels, the functioning of the office, and the assessment of promotions and raises. Sometimes, they border on the very personal. Processing a lawyer’s request to track down a consul’s income for a paternity suit divulges more about the consul’s past than he might wish. Josef Zipser, a Viennese attorney, requested

Constitution, noted, »the preservation of ›the provincial‹ is useful, and shall be highly congenial to the entire nation«. Gijsbert Karel van Hogendorp: »Aanmerking op de Grondwet«, in: Herman T. Colenbrander (ed.): Ontstaan der Grondwet, vol. 1, Den Haag 1908, p. 57. The old elites were paying a price, though. The provincial council no longer had a direct say in national government (as the Provincial States had enjoyed during the Republic), only met once a year for a few days, and had little financial scope. The provincial executive, by contrast, was given a more

spoke of experience and a willingness to engage in brawls and bar fights. He had squinty eyes, a jerky, slightly battered face, and the offhand manner of a little juggernaut. After the capo, he would be my first choice in a rugby match, no doubt. He kindly offered the officer a perfectly reasonable suggestion – one I was thinking of myself, of them posting a waiting list. ›What do you think I am, your Sister?!‹ the officer shouted in his face, about an inch separating them, reframing the smaller rugby man’s suggestion as a taunt to his masculinity and perhaps cause

Introduction Aside from looking at political history, any examination of the politicization of bourgeois elites needs to pay particular attention to the history of ideas and political thought too. Looking at it from a Central European perspective, this approach has a strong tradition, especially in Poland and Hungary, partly also in Slovakia, but not in the Czech lands. This is yet another reason why we need to build on analytical works within political theory (e.g., works of the Slovak philosopher Tibor Pichler ) See especially Pichler Tibor , Etnos a

are too few foreigners in the country, and 8% “did not know” ( Čadová 2016 , 2). Looking at it from a longitudinal perspective, the data show a clear time correlation between decreasing willingness of Czech citizens for the permanent settlement of foreigners and solving the migration crisis, as Graph 1 shows. Graph 1 Attitude of Czech citizens to the issue of permanent settlement of foreigners Note: “Yes” category summarizes the answers “strongly or rather in favor of permanent settlement”, “no” category counts for “strongly or rather against permanent

Introduction The Crimean Tatars’ fate after the 2014 Crimea’s annexation by Russia is gradually becoming an object of studies. Some of them pay tribute to the complexity of the relationship between the Crimean Tatars and Russian state due to certain developments in the past. These were the first Crimea’s annexation by the Russian Empire in 1783 and the deportation of the Crimean Tatars by the Soviet regime in May 1944, which are crucial for shaping the Crimean Tatars’ perception of Russian policy in contemporary Crimea. Some authors discuss the importance of

factors explain the elevated indices of negative emotions in end-of-war Tokyo. First of all the extreme conditions, of course, though similar ones have not lead envoys in other war-torn cities of that time to a comparable passion. More decisive seems Gorgé's ability and willingness to express sentiments, induced by a specific culture of the French-speaking diplomats of 1920s and 1930s versed in art and literature. Gorgé has also published essays and poetry prior and after his diplomatic career. See also Pierre-Yves Donzé et al. (eds.): »›Journal d'un témoin‹. Camille
