For one thing, the country could not hold together, splitting apart into... more...

Czechoslovakia has captured the nation's imagination throughout the twentieth century. The Allied betrayal of the country to Nazi Germany in 1938 was to demonstrate the appalling consequences of naive appeasement of aggression. The wholesale reform of Soviet communism in the Prague Spring of 1968 won western support, and sympathy when it was crushed... more...

Working through the descriptive and ethnographic texts produced by Czech speakers about Islam and the Ottoman Empire, this study brings to light how they used this discourse to create Czech identities.
