Review of Prague, Capital of the Twentieth Century (Austrian History Yearbook)

Press clipping: Research

Publication date20/04/14

"Sayer’s erudition is nothing short of remarkable ... This same erudition, however, leaves many questions unanswered and a sense of opportunity lost."   Compares the book with Ripellino's Magic Prague, concluding:  "In both books, traditional scholarly methods give way to stark imagery and playful language that create a palpable sense of place. The question, then, is whether the sacrifice is worth the gain."
