Prague in Black and Gold: Scenes from the Life of a European City

Prague in Black and Gold: Scenes from the Life of a European City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prague is at the core of everything both wonderful and terrible in Western history, but few people truly understand this city's unique culture. In Prague in Black and Gold, Peter Demetz strips away sentimentalities and distortions and shows how Czechs, Germans, Italians, and Jews have lived and worked together for over a thousand years.

Synopsis:

Tourists think of Prague as a beautiful city of Old World charms — but it is much more. Peter Demetz strips away sentimental distortions and shows now Czechs, Germans, Italians, and Jews have lived and worked together for a thousand years in the midst of the turmoil of Central Europe.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 379-395) and index.
