Prague, Capital of the Twentieth Century (Times Higher Education review)

Press / Media: Research

Description

"[C]ompelling tales of a city’s artistic, intellectual and political cultures ... the book does not offer a straightforward historical overview. Instead, it presents a collage of stories of individuals or works of art, in which Prague becomes a metaphorical place where Modernist dreams “have time and again unravelled, a location in which the masks have sooner or later always come off” ... [the book] offers an insight into often quite extraordinary life stories connected with Prague as well as their international context."
