Czechoslovakia's interrupted revolution by H. Gordon Skilling( Book )

For about eight months in 1968 Czechoslovakia underwent rapid and radical changes that were unparalleled in the history of communist reform; in the eight months that followed, those changes were dramatically reversed. H. Gordon Skilling provides a comprehensive analysis of the events of 1968, assessing their significance both for Czechoslovakia and for communism generally. The author's account is based on all available written sources, including unpublished Communist Party documents and interviews conducted in Czechoslovakia in 1967, 1968, and 1969. He examines the historical background, the main reforms and political forces of 1968, international reactions, the Soviet intervention, and the experiment's collapse, concluding with his reasons for regarding the events of the Prague spring as a movement of revolutionary proportions.The author's account is based on all available written sources, including unpublished Communist Party documents and interviews conducted in Czechoslovakia in 1967, 1968, 1969.

12 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of T.G. Masaryk deals with his pre-1914 career as a professor and persistent dissenter. For three decades he was a constant and unrelenting critic of conventional wisdom, established institutions, and customary practices in Bohemia and Austria-Hungary. At every stage he was a radical dissident in all questions of public life as well as in private matters: religion, the nationality problem, the place of women, labor and the social question, parliament and government in the Monarchy, its foreign affairs and foreign policy institutions, education, the courts and legal system, the Catholic Church and clericalism, the university establishment, Czech politics and Czech political parties, the interpretations of Czech history, and anti-Semitism. Never afraid to speak his mind and attack the evils of public life and society, Masaryk often found himself alone and suffered the blows of a hostile public opinion and official wrath. He displayed a rare example of civic courage. Although he did not openly advocate full state independence for the Czechs and Slovaks, he was a severe critic of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and prepared the minds of his fellow citizens for the struggle for national freedom in World War I and for a democratic life after 1918

The education of a Canadian : my life as a scholar and activist by H. Gordon Skilling( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This captivating memoir by one of Canada's preeminent and honoured scholars records a life devoted to understanding both the history and destiny of world communism. It also reveals a life lived at the heart of the Soviet experiment, especially as it was tried and tested in Czechoslovakia. The work is a "living history" of some of the most dramatic periods of change in our time, seen first through the eyes of an early and ardent "fellow traveller," then through the sharper lens of an academic striving to make sense of Soviet failures and gross injustices, and finally from the perspective of an experienced scholar, activist, and social critic
