For more than 1,300 years Slovenes had lived in Eastern Europe without having a separate Slovene state, but in December of 1990, they voted for independence, or, put more appropriately, for "disassociation" from Yugoslavia. Unfortunately, Slovenia had to fight for its independence, which it did not fully achieve until 1995 after its bloody disintegration with Yugoslavia was over. Since independence, however, Slovenia has prospered; its economy is far ahead of other former communist states and in 2004 Slovenia acceded to both NATO and the European Union, the only republic of former Yugoslavia to do so. The A to Z of Slovenia covers the history of Slovenia and its struggle to gain independence from communism. This is done through a detailed chronology, an introduction, appendixes, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on some of the more significant persons, places, and events; institutions and organizations; and political, economic, social, cultural, and religious facets.

Once part of the larger republic of Yugoslavia, Slovenia is now an independent country with impressive Alpine scenery and charming Adriatic coastal towns. In addition to practical information on the country's accessible capital, Ljubljana, the Bradt guide explores off-the-beaten-track Slovenia including visits to wine-growing regions, hiking in the Julian Alps, white-water rafting and skiing. A strong emphasis on culture and history is combined with practical information on where to stay and eat, and how to get around.

Affluent, friendly Slovenia, with fairytale lakes and the impressive Julian Alps, is like a quieter mini-Switzerland. Its pretty, comfortably-sized capital city is Ljubljana—a city by the river on which the mythological Argonauts carried the Golden Fleece—with its rich Roman heritage jostling comfortably with Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau façades. Within a couple of hours are the breathtaking Julian Alps, complete with glorious lakes and Triglav National Park. The Karst region is planted with olive groves, vineyards, peach orchards, and cherry trees, and is also the location of some of the most beautiful subterranean worlds on Earth, in the form of over six thousand karst caves and sink holes, of which ten are open to tourists. Experience the Mediterranean coast, and, inland, medieval castles, wine-growing hillsides, small churches and monasteries, mighty forests and gentle birch groves, rounded hills, storks and wind-rattles, floating mills, and healing waters.

"This is a history of a space - a space between the Panonian plain in the East and the most northernmost bay in the Adriatic in the West, from the eastern Alps in the North and the Dinaridic mountain area in the South. It is also a history of all the different people who lived in this area. The authors show that the Slavs did not settle an empty space and simply replace the Celto-Roman inhabitants of earlier times; they are, on the contrary, presented as the result of reciprocal acculturation. The authors show that the Slovenes made more than two important appearances throughout the entire feudal era; the same holds for later periods, especially for the twentieth century. This book offers a concise and complete history of an area that finally became an integral part of Central Europe and the Balkans."--pub. desc.

Annotation Although growth of infrastructure services in Vietnam since the late 1980s greatly facilitated rapid growth in exports and gross domestic product (GDP), Vietnam's infrastructure still suffers from a number of major inadequacies. This report has three main objectives: to describe and assess the current status and performance of key infrastructure sectors; to describe and assess the policy, regulatory, and institutional environment for involving the private sector in those sectors; and to help policymakers in framing future reform and development strategies and to assist potential private sector investors in assessing investment opportunities.
