The Prague Spring and its Aftermath: Czechoslovak Politics, 1968-1970

The Prague Spring of 1968 was among the most important episodes in postwar European politics—one of the few pre-Gorbachev attempts to reform one-party communist rule. In this book Kieran Williams analyzes the attempt at reform under Alexander Dubcek and its suppression by the Soviet Union, using archive materials and other sources that have become available in the wake of the 1989 revolution. The book will provide new information for specialists as well as introductory analysis and narrative for students of East European politics and history and Soviet foreign policy.
