A History of the Czechs and Slovaks

By R. W. Seton-Watson

Hutchinson, 1943, 413 pp.

The author, Masaryk Professor of Central European History in the University of London, is one of the leading authorities in the English-speaking world on the Danube Basin. This history is the result of many years of study, much of it on the spot in Central Europe. On such a controversial subject no author, be he ever so profound an expert, can hope for unanimous assent to his interpretations. Though Professor Seton-Watson is not one to dodge an argument, this comprehensive and fair-minded volume would seem destined to stand the test of time.
