In Czechs and Germans 1848–2004, Václav Houžvicka describes the development of the Czech-German national controversies from the mid-nineteenth century through the establishing of the Czechoslovak Republic in 1918 and finally to the beginning of the twenty-first century. He focuses mainly on the tragic end of the nations’ coexistence in 1938–1945 and the development—in the latter part of the twentieth century—of differing Czech and German explanations for the reasons the Germans were removed from the Czechoslovak Republic after 1945. A detailed explanation of Czech, German, and Sudeten-German concepts is rendered coherently and in detail, within the international and social-economic context of the twentieth century.
