The article presents a survey of scholarly articles and books written about the historiography of Slovakia since 1993. It analyzes the themes that Western scholars focus on when writing about the history of the second Slovak Republic, particularly focusing on the role that previous efforts to gain independence, or autonomy, played in the decision to split Czechoslovakia into Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Some of the literature discussed includes the books "The Czech and Slovak Republics: Nation versus State" by Carol Skalnik Leff, "Defining the Sovereign Community: The Czech and Slovak Republics" by Nadya Nedelsky, and "Nature Protests: The End of Ecology in Slovakia" by Edward Snajdr.
