About the Author:

Philip E. Muehlenbeck is a Professorial Lecturer in History at George Washington University, USA. He is the author of Betting on the Africans: John F. Kennedy's Courting of African Nationalist Leaders and editor of Religion and the Cold War: A Global Perspective.

Review:

“Based on careful research in both Czechoslovakian and U.S. archives and a strong grasp of the relevant secondary sources for broad context, Muehlenbeck’s book once again displays his persuasive writing style and insightful analysis. ... This book adds another very important piece to the puzzle of foreign-relations history during the Cold War, and should be consulted by all scholars of post-WWII African international affairs.” (Andy DeRoche, H-Net Reviews, H-Diplo Roundtable Review, Vol. 18 (19), March, 2017)

“The author organizes his book on a chronological principle and around major cases.  ... The book should be read by those interested in Africa’s history and politics, as well as in the history of the Cold War. The author has presented to the English-speaking world the unknown Czechoslovakia, as another European country, which used to be an important actor on the African scene.” (Sergey Mazov, H-Net Reviews, H-Diplo Roundtable Review, Vol. 18 (19), March, 2017)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 272 pages. After World War II, Czechoslovakia sought to develop both economic and diplomatic relations with nearly every state in Africa. It created financial, cultural, and political ties to many African states, which led to the opening of Czech cultural centers, Czech movie weeks, and the study of the Czech language throughout Africa. Over two thousand African students studied at Czechoslovak universities free of charge. Furthermore, the Czechoslovak government gave significant amounts of military aid to newly established national armies of independent African states as well as to national liberation movements still fighting against European colonialism. Czechoslovakias involvement in Africa was massive in scale when its small population and size of its national economy is considered. This book explores these events in wider Cold War historiography, then provides contextual background information on the evolution of communist Czechoslovakias pro-Soviet foreign policy orientation. This shift in Soviet foreign policy made Africa a priority for the Soviet bloc. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover.
