Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The collapse of the communist regimes in Eastern Europe literally on the TV screens of the American public has led to a new interest in the history of the region, and Czechoslovakia in particular seems to have inspired a special sentiment among Americans. In The Czechs and the Lands of the Bohemian Crown, Hugh Agnew offers

  • The first up-to-date single-volume history of the Czechs, providing an introduction to the major themes and contours of Czech history for the general reader
  • A scholarly synthesis of Czech history that takes into account both Western and Marxist insights—as well as the input of the newest generation of Czech historians
  • A comprehensive fusion of three different focuses on Czech history: a political-diplomatic view, a social-economic view, and a cultural-intellectual view
  • The most detailed chronology of the region currently available, from prehistory and the first Slavs to the Czech Republic's entrance into the European Union

Synopsis:

In this first up-do-date, single volume history of the Czechs, Agnew provides an introduction to the major themes and contours of Czech history for the general reader—from prehistory and the first Slavs to the Czech Republic's entry into the European Union.
