Havel - A Life

by Michael Žantovsky  |  ISBN: 978 0 85789 852 4  |  Type: Hard Bound


Michael Žantovsky has written an honest and personal biography of the man, Vaclav Havel, whose life was often portrayed in mythical ways.

Historically this is a complete life story, from birth to death, and a fascinating telling of the day by day, good times, the tumultuous, the human, and the often uncertain.

This book is especially for those interested in the events leading up to, during, and immediately following the so called "Velvet Revolution". 

Finally, this is one of the defining studies on the inner working of the Czechoslovak communist regime, and it treatment of dissent.
