Summary "This interdisciplinary work focuses on the ideological intertwining between Czech, Magyar, Polish, and Slovak, and the corresponding nationalisms steeped in these languages. This politicized symbiotic bonding arose and developed during the last two centuries. The analysis is presented against the background of the earlier political and ideological history of these languages, and the extensive panorama of the emergence and political uses of other Central and Eastern European languages, which may be used as a reference."--BOOK JACKET.
