Self-Government, Development and Political Extremism at the Regional Level: A Case Study from the Banská Bystrica Region in Slovakia. This article is a contribution to the debate on specific and interrelated problems of regional government, regional development and the electoral success of radical political forces in post-socialist Europe in the late transition times and during the financial and economic crisis and its aftermath. We document these issues based on the case of the Banská Bystrica region, which is perceived as one of the most problematic territories in Slovakia in terms of socio-economic development. We attempt to explain the political success of the radical far-right political party Kotleba – Ľudová strana Naše Slovensko, observable since 2013, through an assessment of socio-economic data, in-depth interviews, as well as statistical analysis. We suggest that the persistently difficult social and economic situation, the contradictory population structure and processes (ageing, migration, multi-ethnicity), less successful regional development policies of central state and EU cohesion policy goals and implementation, as well as the weaker position and capacities of regional self-government have contributed to growing apathy and disillusionment in mainstream political parties, rising Euroscepticism and finally the electoral success of the far-right in this region.

Body as a Project: The Relationship Czech Prisoners Have to Their Bodies. The text focuses on the relationship inmates have to their bodies during imprisonment. The data presented in this study are based on ethnographic research carried out in Czech men's high security prisons. The data set consists of interviews with partakers from the “world of prisoners”, observations from prisons and analysis of documents relating to Czech prison service. The analysis shows there is a strong relationship between the physical body and the process of constructing manhood/masculinity in the population of inmates. The physical body is one of crucial components of the masculine/macho prison code/culture. The attitude inmates have to their bodies seems to be altering, depending on the stage of imprisonment in which they currently are. For the description of this alteration I use the concept of the body as a project, which may serve as one of the possible ways of understanding the importance of the physical body to inmates during their imprisonment and changing motivations to its further development.

Frequency and Intensity of Contact between Ageing Parents and their Adult Children in the Czech Republic: Exploration of Selected Predictors. The aim of this study was to analyse the frequency and intensity of contact between parents and their adult children in the Czech Republic. Using data from the Life Roles survey collected in 2014 we first focused on the effects of selected characteristics of parents and offspring. Next, we added residential distance, trying to see whether it can account for the effect of some of these predictors. The results show that the odds of frequent contact were higher among mothers and when the child in question was a daughter; and lower among divorced and higher educated parents. Mothers also spent more time per week on average with their child than fathers. In addition, contact was more intensive with daughters, but less intensive if the parent was working, and if the child was married. Contact frequency and intensity were also negatively affected by the age of the youngest grandchild. Distance had a strong negative effect on both dependent variables, but mostly accounted for the effect of age on frequency of contact, and some of the effect of child’s marital status on contact intensity.

The (Non)Political Taboo: Why Democracies Ban Holocaust Denial. This article unpacks the controversy that surrounds criminal law restrictions on Holocaust denial in democracies. By applying insights from postmodernist and post-structuralist theories on amendments of criminal legislation in three Central European democracies, I aim to understand the interplay between politics and truth in introducing legal bans on Holocaust denial. Through a comparative analysis of parliamentary discourse, I demonstrate that the various justifications in favor of such bans all postulate that truth should be separated from politics. In turn, this effort to transform the Holocaust into a taboo outside of politics has consequences on the nature of its remembrance. Sociológia 2017, Vol. 49 (No. 6: 673-693)

The Images of Slovakia in Narrations of the Polish Local Elites in the Borderland. The article presents the sociological reconstruction of images of Slovakia and Slovaks used by Polish local elites in Southern Poland. The analysis is based on the qualitative data from three borderland towns. The theoretical concept of space as the social construct and S. Ossowski’s idea of the neighbourhood distance, led to mapping of structure of different local imaginations of Slovakia and their position in the general concept of locality used by the respondents.
