Beschreibung:

Establishment of the Croatian linguonym and ethnonym in four Slovene border regions - White Carniola («Bela krajina»), Kostel, Prekmurje, and Prlekija as a temporary phenomenon, replacing the original Slovene name - The process of Croatization and later de-Croatization of what is now eastern Slovenia - Multiple changes in the population's identity.
This book analyzes the reasons for the emergence and extinction of the Croatian name in four Slovene border regions. The author uses comparative methods and a broad spectrum of sources. In the early Modern Age, the Croatian name established itself in these areas as a temporary phenomenon, replacing the original Slovene name, which at that time had a «pre-national» content and was also used by a considerable portion of today's Croats. Extending the use of the Croatian name to the Slovene border regions was a component of a broader and long-term process. The author explores how this process was triggered by tectonic geopolitical changes resulting from the Ottoman conquests in the Balkans and the Pannonian Basin.
