Drawing on the most recent textbooks for lower secondary education in Slovakia, this paper examines two issues. Firstly, the interpretation of national identity is analysed. Does this reflect a primordialist, constructivist or ethno-symbolist perspective? Secondly, this paper looks at the interpretation of European integration in Slovakian textbooks. Is it rooted in inter-governmentalism or supra-nationalism? Keywords: National identity, European integration, textbooks
