Vaclav Havel. Promovy ta esei. (Speeches and Essays)
"Five brilliant texts by Vaclav Havel, one of the most outstanding intellectuals of the 20th century, dissident, political activist, the first president of the Czech Republic. In his perception, politics is not about technology or manipulation, but rather a constant struggle for the ideals and values, unbreakable faith in humans and in the power of the European culture. Vaclav Havel reminds us about importance of history, freedom, conscience, personal responsibility and joint action, and although the texts were written about different times and different society, it will be surprisingly easy for Ukrainians to recognize in them the problems that we have not yet fully overcome.
In addition to works by Havel, the publication contains memoirs by Mustafa Dzhemilev about his meeting this outstanding figure."
