"In addition to revealing the events surrounding the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, this is the first book to document a Cold War crisis from both sides of the Iron Curtain. It is based on unprecedented access to the previously closed archives of each member of the Warsaw Pact, as well as once highly classified American documents from the National Security Council, CIA, and other intelligence agencies." "Presented in a highly readable volume, the book offers top-level documents from Kremlin Politburo meetings, multilateral sessions of the Warsaw Pact leading up to the decision to invade, transcripts of KGB-recorded telephone conversations between Leonid Brezhnev and Alexander Dubcek." "To provide a historical and political context, the editors have prepared essays to introduce each section of the volume. A chronology, glossary and bibliography offer further background information for the reader." "The editors have a unique perspective to offer to foreign audiences since they are members of the commission appointed by Vaclav Havel to investigate the events of 1967-1970."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This text is the inside story of how the CIA combined with the Vatican under the Polish Pope John Paul II to launch a massive campaign to destabilise Warsaw - and how the KGB reacted by trying to kill the Pope in 1981. The rise of the Solidarity movement in Poland in the 1980s, which began the undermining of the Soviet Bloc and the defeat of international communism, was essentially funded by the CIA covertly, through the Vatican.

Out of touch with modern travelers and unconcerned with contemporary lifestyles and interests, moat guidebook writers are unexciting and colorless, advising their renders to "pack a rain poncho" and "wear comfortable shoes". Not so with the Avant Guide series, which commands "Refuse to Be a Tourist!" as its tagline. Both up-to-date and up-to-speed, these travel guides combine colorized photos, interesting graphics, clever features, and coverage of current cultural scenes for the playful look of a top-notch urban magazine. Comprehensive and filled with maps, charts, photographs, and no-holds- barred advice on sights, restaurants, hotels, nightlife, shopping, and more, Avant Guide Prague is as practical as it is fun to read. It offers the first word on what's new in that fascinating city, and the last word on everything else, with the inside scoop on film, music, art, and literature. As with the other books in the series, it makes heavy use of nontraditional type faces, undulating text, end other eye-catching design elements. The semisoft covers are extremely durable, enjoyable to hold, and, as a style accessory in themselves, don't make their users stick out like guidebook-toting tourists. Travelers to Prague will appreciate the book's coverage of transportation, money, essential services, fitness and sports, "meals after midnight", cafes and tea rooms, day trips, overnight excursions, and helpful before-you-go planning tips. With Avant Guide Prague, readers will confidently explore Old Town, The Jewish Quarter, Mala Strana, and New Town; find bars, pubs, restaurants, and discos to their liking; see the best museums, exhibits, theater, and musical performances; and otherwise divehead-first into Prague's cultural delights without having to research them or think twice. Advice is given by people at the epicenter of each scene, including Oscar- winning director Jan Sverak, pop star Lucie Bila, parliament speaker Stanislav Gross, bestselling novelist Michael Vieweigh, and a dozen more.
