A series of skillfully conducted dialogues in which ten men with special knowledge and experience discuss communism and nationalism in Eastern and Western Europe, with the Prague Spring the center of attention. The talks with four leading Czech actors in that drama shed new light on its meaning and its relation to the rise of Eurocommunism; those with three American officials holding responsible posts at the time are somewhat less thrilling.
