An Introduction to Music Alternatives in Czechoslovakia in the Period of ‘Normalization’
Languages of publication
In his introduction to the following block of articles, Miroslav Vaněk presents the grant-funded project of which they are a result, ‘Pop Music Alternatives in Czechoslovakia in the Period of Normalization’. He explains the basic terms used, and provides a survey of the research on the history of this topic. The fi ve articles published in this issue of Soudobé dějiny aim to illustrate, from various angles and using various examples, the complexity of the co-existence and clashes between various kinds of rock or alternative music and the subculture linked with it, on the one hand, and the Czechoslovak Communist régime and society in the twenty years from 1970 to 1989, called the period of ‘normalization’, on the other.
