According to the reviewer, Jaroslav Med’s Literární život ve stínu Mnichova (1938–1939) (Literary life in the shadow of the Munich Agreement, 1938–39) presents a panorama of the period through the lens of literary life, while focusing chiefly on landmarks such as the Spanish Civil War. The work is a well-composed whole in which the emphasis on important figures is counterbalanced by an accent on the key ideas and trends of the times. The Czech topic is interpreted against an international background, and literature is considered in the context of the arts and sciences, society, and theology. In his work, the reviewer believes, Med does not cater to any ideology or preconceived thesis, but is a perceptive interpreter of a complicated period.
