The Munich Crisis, 1938: Prelude to World War II

Overview

Most of the works on the crises of the 1930s and especially the Munich Agreement in 1938 were written when it was virtually impossible to gain access to the relevant archive collections on both sides of the Iron Curtain. This text studies the Czechoslovak-German crisis and its impact from previously neglected perspectives and celebrates the post-Cold War openness by bringing in new evidence from hitherto inaccessible archives.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Drawing on archival evidence only recently accessible, British and North American historians look at the Czechoslovak-German crisis and the Munich Agreement to update studies that are half a century old and based on limited and biased material. They consider such factors as Stalin, Hungary, France, Mussolini, US propaganda policy, and the Sino-Japanese conflict. Distributed in the US by ISBS. The 13 essays also appeared in v.10, nos.2&3 (July/November 1999). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
