This book is about the political, social and economic changes in Czechoslovakia in the years 1945-1948. In 1945 the 'national revolution' established the Communist Party as the dominant force within a coalition government.

ALEXANDER BARAN University of Manitoba. Socialism and democracy in czechoslovakia, 1945-1948. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1981. Communist historians consider the communist assumption of power in Czechoslovakia in February 1948 important because of that country's strategic position. The outcome of the confrontation between the communist and democratic forces could either have helped establish Soviet domination in Eastern Europe or have blocked the path to Soviet expansion. In his study, Martin Myant retraces the rise to power of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (KSC').

Socialism and Democracy in Czechoslovakia : 1945-1948. The leading Communists then evolved the idea of a specific Czechoslovak road to socialism that could bypass the 'dictatorship of the proletariat'.

From the Communist coup d'état in February 1948 to the Velvet Revolution in 1989, Czechoslovakia was ruled by the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (Czech: Komunistická strana Československa, KSČ). The country belonged to the Eastern Bloc and was a member of the Warsaw Pact and of Comecon. During the era of Communist Party rule, thousands of Czechoslovaks faced political persecution for various offences, such as trying to emigrate across the Iron Curtain.

This book is about the political, social and economic changes in Czechoslovakia in the years 1945- 1948. In 1945 the 'national revolution' established the Communist Party as the dominant force within a coalition government. The leading Communists then evolved the idea of a specific Czechoslovak road to socialism that could bypass the 'dictatorship of the proletariat'. By analysing in detail the revolutionary events and the society that emerged from them, the book demonstrates that there was a real possibility of developing a distinct model of socialism containing a plurality of parties and a sizeable private sector. Such thinking, however, was effectively ended in February 1948, when the Communist Party established a monopoly of power. The fundamental causes of this change in the party's strategy are to be found, it is argued, in the international situation. The February events were of international significance as they confirmed the division of Europe into two blocs. The concluding chapter shows how important they were for the subsequent development of Czechoslovak society.
