“Karel Capek still has not received the attention he deserves in the Anglo-American world, and Czechoslovakia still has not been fully assimilated into our picture of interwar Europe. Thomas Ort accomplishes both tasks beautifully”
David S. Luft, Professor of History, Oregon State University

“…a compelling portrait of Czech artistic life before and after World War I adds important new insight into the interconnections between aesthetics and politics during this turbulent period.” – Mary Gluck, Professor of History, Brown University

“Elegantly written and thoughtfully argued.” – Chad Bryant, Associate Professor of History, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
