Martin Kučera reconstructs the development of Josef Pekař's ideas and attitudes in 1914-1918, that is during the time period culminating with the foundation of independent Czechoslovakia. This book shows Josef Pekař not only as an excellent historian, but also as a publicly active figure. The detailed analysis of Pekař's experience of the Great War shows the changes that part of the Czech society underwent on the way from Pro-Austrian activism to the acceptance of the independent Czechoslovak State. The book is supplemented by selected documents from the period.
