Prague Winter is my attempt to record a demented time during which I was both witness and involuntary participant. For many years I was haunted by nightmares of being recaptured by the Gestapo or of being trapped in Prague under the communists.

The original sources compiled in this volume, many of which have not previously been available in English, will allow students of communism to examine more closely both the substance of change in Czechoslovakia prior to Soviet intervention in August 1968 and the subsequent disarray in the international Communist movement. Robin Remington has selected documents to show, first, what was actually happening in Czechoslovakia before invasion. Ow had what George Modelski calls "Communist culture" with its own literature, symbols, and ritual behavior declined in Prague? This section includes major statements on such questions as freedom of the press, the role of the Czechoslovak Communist Party, Czech-Slovak constitutional federation, the importance of interest groups within a Communist state, and the controversial Action Program of the new Dubcek government. The second and third sections of the book contain papers on Czechoslovak liberalization and orthodox response. The documents show increasingly concerned Soviet and East European reactions, pressures put on Prague, and negotiations, which, failing, led to invasion. The book's fourth section deals with the invasion and the split in world communism. It shows postinvasion justification from Moscow combined with deviant reactions from other Communist parties. Specifically, documents demonstrate where parties normally so far apart as the Chinese and the French stood in relation to the invasion, and they discuss reverberations in Yugoslavia and Rumania, Cuba, North Vietnam, and Italy. The text includes six cartoons from Czechoslovak journals, seventy-two documents, and thirty-five commentaries by Robin Remington, who is Research Associate in Communist Studies, M.I.T. Center for International Studies. Winter in Prague is the fourteenth book in the Studies in Communism, Revisionism, and Revolution series, William E. Griffith, general editor.

“A remarkable story of adventure and passion, tragedy and courage set against the backdrop of occupied Czechoslovakia and World War II.” —Václav Havel From former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright comes a moving and thoughtful memoir of her formative years in Czechoslovakia during the tumult of Nazi occupation, World War II, fascism, and the onset of the Cold War. An intensely personal journey into the past that offers vital lessons for the future, Prague Winter combines the intimacy of an autobiography with the drama of an exciting and well-told story—all underpinned by the gravity and intelligence of a serious work of history. The result is a highly readable and incisive work filled with tragedy and triumph, a resonant narrative informed by Albright’s remarkable life experience and her characteristic candor in speaking hard truths.

This book is a photographic collection that captures the incredible city of Prague on a trip on a January weekend. Prague is one of the world's great cities and one that I have a very special connection with. A long time ago (in the early 1990's), I went there to find my fortune and explore the "Left Bank of the '90's". It was a magical experience, even if I have not yet managed to complete my masterpiece. Every time I return, it feels like the last scenes of the film "Before Sunrise" where the last scenes of the film show the places that now seem empty without the characters to bring them to life. The photographs capture the city through the streets, the food, the nightlife, the people and the unique flavour of life that is Prague. Places that I habitually made my own during that time and new places that are fresh. This time in Winter.

Drawing on her own memory, her parents’ written reflections, interviews with contemporaries, and newly-available documents, former US Secretary of State and New York Times bestselling author Madeleine Albright recounts a tale that is by turns harrowing and inspiring. Before she turned twelve, Madeleine Albright’s life was shaken by some of the most cataclysmic events of the 20th century: the Nazi invasion of her native Prague, the Battle of Britain, the attempted genocide of European Jewry, the allied victory in World War II, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War. In Prague Winter, Albright reflects on her discovery of her family’s Jewish heritage many decades after the war, on her Czech homeland’s tangled history, and on the stark moral choices faced by her parents and their generation. Often relying on eyewitness descriptions, she tells the story of how millions of ordinary citizens were ripped from familiar surroundings and forced into new roles as exile leaders and freedom fighters, resistance organizers and collaborators, victims and killers. These events of enormous complexity are shaped by concepts familiar to any growing child: fear, trust, adaptation, the search for identity, the pressure to conform, the quest for independence, and the difference between right and wrong. Prague Winter is an exploration of the past with timeless dilemmas in mind, a journey with universal lessons that is simultaneously a deeply personal memoir and an incisive work of history. It serves as a guide to the future through the lessons of the past, as seen through the eyes of one of the international community’s most respected and fascinating figures. Albright and her family’s experiences provide an intensely human lens through which to view the most political and tumultuous years in modern history.
