ABSTRACT
The article reports on the book "Czechoslovakia in European History," by S. Harrison Thomson Professor Thomson of the University of Colorado is one of the very few American scholars who did graduate work in Czech history at the Prague University. His book was first published in 1943, when Czechoslovakia--a nation created for the first time in 1918 out of the former Kingdom of Bohemia and the Hungarian province of Slovakia was under German domination. Its favorable reception has made the present enlarged second edition possible and desirable, at a time when Czechoslovakia, restored in 1945 in its 1918 frontiers without the Soviet-annexed Carpatho-- Ukraine, is under Russian domination.
