About this book

This book explores Czechoslovakia's diplomatic relations with African states and places them within a wider Cold War historiography, providing contextual background information on the evolution of communist Czechoslovakia's pro-Soviet foreign policy orientation. This shift in Soviet foreign policy made Africa a priority for the Soviet bloc.

Reviews

“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)
