The Prague Spring and the Warsaw Pact Invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968

The twelfth book, The Prague Spring and the Warsaw Pact Invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 edited by Günter Bischof, Stefan Karner, and Peter Ruggenthaler; is a collection of essays by contributors from seven countries who reexamine the Soviet-Czechoslovak crisis of 1968.  The book covers all major aspects of the crisis, looking at internal developments in Czechoslovakia and Soviet and East European reactions. The book details the Soviet decision-making process and shows how a consensus emerged in Moscow in favor of an invasion of Czechoslovakia.  The book has been hailed for its “meticulous scholarship,” its “wonderfully lucid reassessments of the Prague Spring and crushing Soviet intervention,” and its “exhaustive research and documentation.”
