Questions of Identity Czech and Slovak
Ideas of Nationality and Personality

Robert B. Pynsent

Pynsent traces the development of Czech and Slovak conceptions of individual and national identity through literature and myth. In so doing, he illuminates-with erudition, wit, and clarity-the history and present-day politics of Central Europe.
