Summary
"In the first book to bring together Havel's life and work, James Pontuso examines the Czech president's political philosophy. Pontuso argues that Havel's life as a dissident and political leader, his political writings, and his plays are part of a whole and must be understood as intimately connected to one another. In this work, Pontuso explores these connections and explains Havel's prescriptions for political life."--Jacket
