Languages of publication
The current study analyses changes relating to the approach of Czechoslovak historiography to the phenomenon of Czech domestic anti-Austrian resistance (1914-1918), better known by its later name "Maffie". Firstly, the authors observe how the circumstances of academic research and also the manner of interpretation of this issue changed during the 1918-1968 period. In Part I, they firstly deal with the initial references to "the Maffie" following the foundation of an independent Czechoslovak state, namely the politisation and instrumentalisation of this concept in the public domain and especially its reflection in contemporary historiography. In Part II, the authors’ attention turns to the reflection of "the Maffie" on the part of Marxist historiography in the years 1948-1968. The authors demonstrate the changes of academic research on Czech anti-Austrian resistance not merely in the approaches of individual authors but also on the basis of a wider development of the science of history.
