about this book

In a work written while he was president of a united Czechoslovakia, Havel addresses the legacy of Communism as the euphoria of the Velvet Revolution gives way to a more problematic reality.  As he offers profound reflections upon the nature and practice of politics throughout the world, he also extends a stirring call for a moral political system, a responsible free market, and a statecraft that honors human needs.
