Price: 189,- CZK Add to cart


A collective monograph exploring the shaping of Czech political culture after 1989.

Those of us who wrote this book - were taken by surprise. We were investigating the formation of Czech political culture and political-cultural identities after 1989 – to find out that post-November politics is not divided by different ideologies but that it is actually “divided by the past”. The theme of this publication also is the multilayered role played by the reflection of the past (not only the Communist past) in Czech politics. Seeking and forming of political traditions, and thus also images of the past, was not arbitrary or accidental. Sometimes it was rooted deep in the previous development of the respective political group, at other times in relations originating in an office or a prison, and at yet other times it was the result of the pragmatism of political fight. The past created firm bonds – and all significant participants in contemporary Czech politics built their identity through them.
