Jazz and literary culture in Czechoslovakia today
Škvorecký, Josef, 1924-2012
Skovorecky discusses the Communist repression of the Czech government, especially in the literary and musical fields, since 1968. Particular attention is paid to the development of jazz and punk rock music in Czechoslovakia, the necessary ideological compromises with the present regime, the domestic sources of information on music composed in Czechoslovakia, and the realities of culture control by the authorities in this area.
