The purpose of this master's thesis is to research a reciprocal influence of book and society or how the society affects the content of the book and publishing processes, connected with it, and what is the influence of the book on the society on the example of Slovenska kuharica, famous Slovenian cookbook with 150 years of tradition. In this master's thesis, we aim to answer the questions how did the editions of Slovenska kuharica change through the time in comparison with editorial policies, were the changes in the society considered and what was the role of editors in the production of the books. Data was collected with the analysis of all 29 editions of Slovenska kuharica and interviews with editors of Velika slovenska kuharica. Results have partially confirmed the hypothesis that Slovenska kuharica adjusted to the eating habits of Slovenians, which made it commercially successful, considering we found out that next to following the novelties, keeping the initial tradition of the book is also important. Besides frequent updating and adapting the content to social changes, what is also important for the success of the book is design and author or brand. In the history of the making of Slovenska kuharica editors appeared in different roles: as copywriters and authors of indexes and introductions, and as editors or cultural intermediaries, who made the influence of the society on the book possible with taking into account the changes in society. The findings of the research can help with the next edition of Slovenska kuharica or any other cookbook or renewed edition of a book with a similar dependence on social changes.
