Today young generation, as in the Czech Republic as foreigners, mostly knows little about the history of the totalitarian systems of the 20th century in satellite and occupied countries. The author has come to this conclusion on the basis of her teaching experience. Therefore she decided to elaborate the book "Life in Czechoslovakia Behind Iron Curtain" based on the new archival materials and the latest Czech professional literature focused on the Communist regime from 1945-1989. These archival documents were not available until 1989, the year when the archives were opened for public and researchers, providing a deeper insight concerning the decades of "dictatorship of the working class". The goal of this publication is predominantly educational.
This study explored three psychological components of engagement suggested by Kahn (1990): Meaningfulness, Safety and Availability across two different nationalities (Czech and German) and three generations (Baby Boomers, Generation X and Net Generation). Results supported the model of engagement previously explored by May et al. (2004), indicating the three concepts having an influence on engagement. Furthermore, German participants scored higher on engagement than Czech participants and Baby Boomers were found to perceive their job as significantly more meaningful than the other two younger generations. No evidence for relationship was found between Career/ Parental Self-in-Role and engagement for men, whereas results show a positive link between Career Self-in-Role and engagement for women. A new connection between Career Self-in-Role and Availability was established based on the results, offering a new focus for further research.

Martinek was born on 2 February 1889 in Gratzen (now Nové Hrady, Czech Republic), where his father was a brewer. Enlisting in the army of Austria-Hungary in 1907, he was promoted to Leutnant in 1910, Oberleutnant in 1914, and to Hauptmann in 1917 for outstanding bravery.

Otakar Ostr il (February 25, 1879, Prague August 20, 1935, Prague) was a Czech composer and conductor. He is noted for symphonic works Impromptu, Suite in C Minor, and Symfonietta, and in his opera compositions Poup and Honzovo království. Ostr il was born in Prague, where he spent his entire life, as it was the center of the Czech musical community in his generation. He studied philosophy at Charles University, attending the classes of Otakar Hostinský, and simultaneously studied composition and music theory privately under Zden k Fibich. From his early student days he was a close friend of Zden k Nejedlý, whose outspoken voice in musicology would form Ostr il's greatest critical support. He worked as a conductor at the Vinohrady Theater (1914-1919) and later at the National Theatre (Prague) (1920-1935), which was one of the most influential positions in Czech musical life.

This volume compares different regional perspectives on the national and democracy-building aims of individual states. It confronts discourses about national states to regional perspectives on the past as well as the current political and social landscape. Why are we observing calls for national identity right now? What are the roots of this development? How can a Central European identity be shaped when national perspectives are prevalent?The book’s first part analyses social and political processes that shaped nation-states in the Central European region and shows divergent trends of individual states when it comes to defining a regional approach of the Visegrád Group (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary = V4). The second part focuses on key personalities of the 20th century history of individual V4 countries in the light of their perception in the neighbouring states and how they shaped national states as well as identities after the end of World War II. Similar aims and approaches implemented by individual countries often led to anything but raising regional understanding. The book’s third part reflects upon activities of various initiatives aiming to approach this challenge from the perspective of civil society, and Central Europe’s young generation. The collection brings together leading historians of Central Europe from the V4 countries. It also offers external perspectives on historical developments in Central Europe from the perspective of the 21st century and on political cooperation as well as its roots. Lastly, it includes practitioners of Central European cooperation from both academia and civil society, and their reflection on their countries’ political cooperation after 1989.
