Rataj, Jan: O autoritativní národní stát (On the Way towards the Authoritarian State
To answer the question of the relatively rapid transformation of political culture from democratic to authoritarian Jan Rataj traces the changes in the Czech political ways of thinking in post-Munich Czechoslovakia. He studies the new élite stemming from the authoritarian right, the rise of Czech fascists and also the gradual destruction of the democratic and liberal ideas of the ?First Czechoslovak Republic?.
