PRAGUE IN BLACK AND GOLD:
Scenes from the Life of a European City

Author: Peter Demetz

Every year Prague attracts thousands of enthusiastic visitors with its Old World charms. For a millennium this beautiful city in the heart of Central Europe, with its ancient townships set on hills and in valleys overlooking a strategic river, has been at the core of everything both wonderful and terrible in Western history. Prague in Black and Gold strips away the sentimental distortions and clarifies Prague's true place in world civilization. Throughout, Demetz shows how Czechs, Germans, Italians, and Jews have lived and worked together in Prague for a thousand years - and what their relatively peaceful coexistence can teach us in these days of increased nationalism and xenophobia.
