Czech Republic History: Early History, The Dual Monarchy, 1867-1918, The Czechoslovak Republic, 1918-39 Czechoslovak Democracy

Released: 2016-03-04
Kindle Edition (102 pages)

Czech Republic History: Early History, The Dual Monarchy, 1867-1918, The Czechoslovak Republic, 1918-39 Czechoslovak Democracy
 
Product Description:
While you read Czech history background, in this book you have more information on Czech present stands on culture, people, government, politics, and entire environment
Although a Czechoslovak state did not emerge until 1918, its roots go back many centuries. The earliest records of Slavic inhabitants in present-day Czechoslovakia date from the fifth century A.D. The ancestors of the Czechs settled in present-day Bohemia and Moravia, and those of the Slovaks settled in present day Slovakia. The settlers developed an agricultural economy and built the characteristically circular Slavic villages, the okroulice.
The peaceful life of the Slavic tribes was shattered in the sixth century by the invasion of the Avars, a people of undetermined origin and language who established a loosely connected empire between the Labe (Elbe) and Dnieper rivers. The Avars did not conquer all the Slavic tribes in the area, but they subjugated some of them and conducted raids on others. It was in response to the Avars that Samo--a foreigner thought to be a Frankish merchant--unified some of the Slavic tribes and in A.D. 625 established the empire of Samo. Although the territorial extent of the empire is not known, it was centered in Bohemia and is considered the first coherent Slavic political unit. The empire disintegrated when Samo died in 658.
A more stable polity emerged in Moravia. The Czech tribes of Moravia helped Charlemagne destroy the Avar Empire (ca. 796) and were rewarded by receiving part of it as a fief. Although the Moravians paid tribute to Charlemagne, they did enjoy considerable independence. Early in the ninth century, Mojmir--a Slavic chief--formed the Moravian Kingdom. His two successors expanded its domains to include Bohemia, Slovakia, southern Poland, and western Hungary. The expanded kingdom became known as the Great Moravian Empire. Its importance to Czechoslovak history is that it united in a single state the ancestors of the Czechs and Slovaks

Product Description:
An American immigrant reconnects with her native land, the Czech Republic. This equal-parts travelogue, history, and memoir could only be written by a curious native with a wicked sense of humor. After living in California for over three decades, Lenka, with her husband Larry (a Midwesterner with just the right amount of quirkiness), zigzag the Czech country roads, visiting towns with unpronounceable names like Mstislavice or Hvizdalka. As they search for the answer to why Lenka's father stood taller when he said, “I’m Czechoslovakian”, Lenka exposes sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes triumphant, often grotesquely absurd bits and pieces of her country’s past, providing deeper insight into the complex history and culture of her beer-loving, rule-defying countrymen who have learned to survive squeezed between superpowers - Russia and Germany - and emerged better for it. Czeching In is for anyone planning a trip to the Czech Republic, has been there, has Czech ancestors or wants to learn in an entertaining way about this dazzling country located in the heart of Europe.

Product Description:

In this much-needed chronicle of a fascinating people, Hugh Agnew offers the first up-to-date single-volume history of the Czechs, providing an introduction to the major themes and contours of Czech history for the general reader. Agnew presents the most detailed chronology of the region currently available, from prehistory and the first Slavs to the Czech Republic's entrance into the European Union. Taking into account both Western and Marxist insights—as well as the input of the newest generation of Czech historians—he furnishes a comprehensive fusion of three different focuses on Czech history: a political-diplomatic view, a social-economic view, and a cultural-intellectual view.
