Abstract

When the time approached for Slovakia to be offered NATO membership, its former ruling party HZDS led by Vladimír Mečiar turned around and warmed up to the idea only to be criticized by the new government of Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, a long-time pro-NATO enthusiast. Opinion polls, however, showed the Slovaks to be less interested in joining NATO than other European nations for practical, contemporary, and historical reasons. In an unorthodox development, the overwhelmingly pro-NATO media and NGOs accepted government money to extol the advantages of NATO membership in their editorial output.
