Czech Journal of Contemporary History

The first volume of the Czech Journal of Contemporary History is fully accessible HERE

Dear readers,

Welcome to the first volume of the new English-written journal published by the Institute for Contemporary History of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The main objective of the Czech Journal of Contemporary History (CJCH) is to publish articles and essays as well as important reports and book reviews that have been, in most cases, previously published in Czech in the journal Soudobé dějiny. The aim of the CJCH is to make these contributions available to English-speaking readers interested in contemporary Czech or Central European history and thereby strengthen and promote international academic discussion.

The Editorial Circle of the CJCH

*Note: To print any part of the CJCH, it is necessary to add +2 to the relevant page numbers. This difference is caused by the fact that the first and second page of the cover are not numbered.

Website on the collapse of Czechoslovak communism

To mark the twentieth anniversary of November 17, 1989, a new website was opened at http://www.89.usd.cas.cz/en.html. Through the title, (1989 Democratic Revolution), we hoped to articulate the idea of the last weeks of 1989 as viewed by major collective perceptions, values, and expressions. This website intends to provide both professional and amateur researchers with basic information, images, and interpretations, offering easier access to material previously edited and published, to the archives of the Institute for Contemporary history, and last but not least, to material the use of which was permitted by other institutions and individuals. We intend to supply more documents and images dating from January 1987 to June 1990.
