The Prague Spring and Its Aftermath: Czechoslovak Politics 1968-1970


The Prague Spring of 1968 was among the most important episodes in post-war Europe politics. In the book, the author Kieran Williams analyzes the attempt at reform socialism under Alexander Dubček using materials and resources that became available after the revolution in 1989. Using declassified Communist party archives, author is revisiting important questions: why did liberalization occur? Why did Soviet Union intervene with force? What was the role of the security policy under Dubček? Any many others. The book offers useful narrative for anyone interested in the East European politics and history, and Soviet foreign policy.
