The Politeia series presents important publications dedicated to political theory and modern history; it places political theory into historical context and encourages critical thinking. As the name POLITEIA suggests, it is not content with merely describing the given state, but also thinks about the good life of the community from the civic perspective. It offers a theoretical look into the modern history of societies which underwent democratic or non-democratic changes of the political regimes and whose "fate" holds a greater interpretive value. By means of this selection of key books, which is able to address both the professional and non-professional audiences, we would like to provide readers with a deeper understanding of past and current historical changes. Politeia offers contemplation on politics, democracy and history, which have been long inspired not only by western publications, but also by those which have arisen with a similar purpose here. This series is edited by Milan Znoj and Matěj Spurný
