Languages of publication
Until now, the use of cartographic and historical cartographic works as tools of political propaganda has received very little attention in the Czech context. The submitted study aims to introduce readers to the issue of historical atlases as propaganda, present the most important historical periods in which such works were produced, and in particular give an analysis and evaluation of the most important work of this type of Czechoslovak origin – Historický atlas revolučního hnutí/The Historical Atlas of the Revolutionary Movement (Prague, 1956 and 1959) – to demonstrate the methods by which historical atlases can be used for ideological purposes. Also looked at are the sources it was inspired by, contemporary reception of the work and its use in later academic literature.
