Czechoslovakia in a Nationalist and Fascist Europe, 1918-1948

Cornwall, Mark and Evans, R.J.W. (eds.) (2007) Czechoslovakia in a Nationalist and Fascist Europe, 1918-1948, Oxford, UK, Oxford University Press, 224pp. (Proceedings of the British Academy, 140).

Record type: Book


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.
