Vít Hloušek and Pavel Pšeja, along with other experts from the Faculty of Social Studies of Masaryk University (Stanislav Balík, Lubomír Kopeček, Jan Holzer and Andrew L. Roberts) published a book devoted to the present issues, traditions, and broader international, societal, and economic context of the Czech politics. The book called
"Czech Politics: From West to East and Back Again" was published by Barbara Budrich Verlag.
The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the Czech politics, past and present. The authors not only cover the main political developments of the past two centuries, they also situate the current political system in the context of communist and pre-communist legacies. They argue that amidst the dramatic changes of the Velvet Revolution, one can find a plethora of continuities in culture and institutions that help to explain the shape of Czech politics today.
The book is available for purchase here.
