Cornwall, Mark (2007) 'A Leap into Ice-Cold Water': the Manoeuvres of the Henlein Movement in Czechoslovakia, 1933-1938 In, Cornwall, Mark and Evans, R.J.W. (eds.) Czechoslovakia in a Nationalist and Fascist Europe 1914-1948. Oxford, UK, Oxford University Press pp. 123-142. (Proceedings of the British Academy, 140).

Record type: Book Section


Includes contributors from Britain, Czech Republic, USA, and Germany. 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 that sent 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.
Readership: Scholars and students of European history and politics, World War II.
