The communist subversion of Czechoslovakia, 1938-1948; the failure of coexistence by Josef Korbel( Book )

24 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in English and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the fateful days of the Munich crisis in September 1938 to the final coup in February 1948, the Communists gradually infiltrated Czechoslovakia. This is the record of that tragic conquest, written by the former head of Jan Masaryk's Cabinet in the Czechoslovak Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Mr. Korbel reveals the gradual erosion of all areas of the nation's life-political, economic, cultural, military, social-by Communist techniques. He traces the hopeless attempts at coexistence on the part of such democratic statesmen as Edvard Benes and Jan Masaryk, as they tried to negotiate with such Communists as Klement Gottwald and Stalin himself. The campaign of infiltration followed a preconceived plan, first capturing the mind through persuasion and protestations of nationalism, freedom, democracy; then moving inexorably from the local to the national level, in labor unions, political organizations, channels of communication, the police, the army, the government. This is a moving and objective record of an important event in modern history, and a revealing case study of the Communist capture of a country. Mr. Korbel has based his account on interviews with participants, on unpublished memoirs and documents, on Communist materials published after their seizure of power, and on his own firsthand knowledge and experience.

Poland between East and West : Soviet and German diplomacy toward Poland, 1919-1933 by Josef Korbel( Book )

21 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Russia and Germany were far apart in their principal goals, their negative attitude toward the Europe of Versailles brought these two "outcasts" together. Poland, a "child" of the Versailles Peace Treaty, was a bar to the Soviet drive toward a revisionist policy. Therefore, in an atmosphere of mutual distrust and deceit, Russia and Germany entered into an intricate series of negotiations designed to destroy Poland either by military action or by diplomatic pressure. Josef Korbel traces the strange course of these negotiations, basing his work on original documents such as the files of the German Foreign Office, the personal papers of General von Seeckt, documents of the Soviet government, the Supreme Soviet, and the Third International, and on original Polish sources. Originally published in 1963.

Danger in Kashmir by Josef Korbel( Book )

37 editions published between 1954 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the most important problem that separates India and Pakistan today is their dispute over the ownership of the State of Jammu and Kashmir. This dispute flared twice into an open war in 1947-48 and 1965. In order to stop this dispute from developing into a world conflagration, initial efforts were made in 1948 by the United Nations to seek a peaceful solution to the basic dispute as to whether Kashmir should belong to India or to Pakistan. The author was a member of the UN Commission on India and Pakistan, and provides a first-hand account of the initial efforts of the United Nations to resolve the Kashmir issue
Detente in Europe; real or imaginary? by Josef Korbel( Book )

Josef Korbel, whose career encompasses both scholarly and diplomatic roles, presents a crisp, up-to-date survey of postwar relations between East and West. Seeking analytic, reasoned answers to the question of détente, he discusses in detail the changes in mood, policy, and practice that have occurred and are occurring. What exactly does rapprochement mean to the U.S.S.R., the U.S., East and West Europe? Is its primary objective the relaxing of tension or the achievement of security? the expansion of national interests? ideological conversion? reduction of Soviet influence? What have been th
