Domestic Causes of the Fall of the Parliamentary Democracy and the Collapse of the Civic Society in Slovakia after October 6, 1938

Zemko, Milan

The study tries to show common Czechoslovak reasons for crisis of the democratic regime after the Munich agreement on September 30, 1938 as well as some Slovak specifics in this matter. As for the Slovak specifics, one can see them in an dominant position of Hlinka´s Slovak People´s Party, an Catholic-conservative party with a tendency to authoritative stile of a government a long time before Munich, a weak position of the former dominant Czechoslovak parties (first of all Agrarians and Social Democrats) and a state of Slovak society in after-Munich time.

He analyzes its symptoms in the interwar democratic Czechoslovak Republik and in the autoritarian wartime Slovak Republic with its growing tendency to the totalitarian regime.
