Book Review
Due to the success of his first campaign involving the Amulet of Samarkand, Nathaniel, now fourteen, has been appointed the youngest representative ever to the Office of Internal Affairs, and has been devising traps to capture members of the Resistance--a secretive group of commoners who are determined to undermine the ruling class of magicians. When a magic-sapping Golem’s surprise first attack is labeled an act of Resistance terrorism, Nathaniel reluctantly summons Bartimaeus for help. Meanwhile, a zealous young member of the Resistance, Kitty Jones, is planning to rob the sacred tomb of the great magician Gladstone, and turn the power of his buried magical instruments against the spell makers. The towering clay Golem and its shadowy master unites the destinies of Nathaniel, Bartimaeus, and Kitty together in one...

From Booklist
Gr. 7-12. Titles in the Nations in Transition series, which includes books about Afghanistan and the Central Asian Republics, face a daunting challenge: offering up-to-date overviews of rapidly changing countries. In this revised edition, Otfinoski adds new watershed events to the 1997 text, beginning with Prague's devastating floods of 2002. The Czech Republic's admittance to the European Union is too recent to receive full coverage here, but Otfinoski admirably examines the country's complex political changes just prior to 2004. Chapters about Czech history, culture, and daily life (with a few annoying generalizations, such as Czechs are "practical people with a vivid imagination"), round out this thorough, useful resource. Further readings, grainy black-and-white photos, and an extensive chronology are also included....

Review
"Kirschbaum has given the Western world the first popular history of Slovakia...This is a rich historical work, diligently researched and compellingly written. An important contribution to the literature on Eastern and Central Europe...." - Library Journal

"A History of Slovakia is a masterpiece of historical narrative with a clear-stated and well-structured argument. It is free from ideological or political bias, and able to fill a painful gap in the modern English-speaking historiography."
--Emilia Hrabovec, University of Vienna

"A History of Slovakia is the most accessible English source of comprehensive information on Slovakia's past. It is stimulating and well suited for readers interested in this fascinating country and for university courses."
-- Martin Votruba, Director, Slovak...
