This volume presents fresh and original writing on the history of Czechoslovakia, a state neglected in British historiography, but which is vital for understanding Europe after 1918. The country twice lost its independence, firstly to Hitler's Germany and then to Stalin's USSR - events thatsent shock waves through the continent. The fourteen essays deal with four main subject areas: aspects of Czech national society, the Czech-Slovak relationship, the Czech-German relationship, and the British dimension. This highly accessible volume, containing many new insights, provides major case study material for researchers and students of nationalism, fascism and international relations.
Mark Cornwall is a Professor of Modern European History, University of Southampton. R.J.W. Evans is Regius Professor of History, University of Oxford, and Fellow of the British Academy.
