The infamous Munich Conference of 1938, at which England and France sold Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany for an utterly worthless promise of future peace, was the death knell for democracy in Capek’s homeland for the next half century. Chapters 3 through 5 are dedicated to texts that sprang, so to speak, from the womb of Marxist-Leninist ideology.
