Dubcek Speaks

Dubcek, Author, Alexander Dubcek, Author I. B. Tauris & Company $37.95 (110p) ISBN 978-1-85043-208-1
The Soviet invasion of Prague in 1968 not only dealt a massive blow to Czech liberalization, stresses Dubcek, who was then head of Czechoslovakia, but Moscow's invading tanks also crushed the Hungarian reform movement and trammeled change in the Soviet Union for two decades. Now chairman of the Czech parliament, Dubcek gave this impassioned television interview to Hungarian journalist Sugar in April 1989. Of special interest are his reminiscences of growing up in the Soviet Union during Stalin's reign of terror in the 1930s, his stinging attack on Brezhnev and his vivid account of being arrested at gunpoint in 1968 and hauled off to Moscow.
