Synopsis: On the eve of his fiftieth birthday, Vaclav Havel looks back on his life in the theatre, the literary politics of his early years and the stagnation that followed the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. Havel also discusses his part in his country's struggle to restore morality and civic responsibility to public life and the price he has paid for this. Havel spent several years in prison, faced constant harassment by the police, and had his plays banned. Despite this, the account is lacking in bitterness. Czechoslovakia's leading playwright emerges as a man of profound moral conviction and clarity, a master of "absurd theatre" who, paradoxically, was in 1989 elected president of his country.

From the Publisher: "Unquestionably [Havel's] finest work...Part autobiography, part history, part esthetics, [it] finds its unity in the personal qualities that catapulted a lonely dissenter...into prominence as the reluctant president of his country....Disturbing the Peace leaves no room for controversy about his place in the moral pantheon of our century."--The New York Times Book Review

"Merits our utmost attention....A truly Jeffersonian vision...That vision, so respectful of human rights in Czechoslovakia, could affect social change in any country."--Washington Post Book World
