Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Havel discusses his transformation from absurdist playwright to activist to president of Czechoslovakia in interviews conducted during 1985 and 1986 by exiled journalist Hvizdala. "Mingling autobiography with discussions of politics, literature and theater, his ruminations add up to a disarming and involving self-portrait," said PW .

From the Publisher

"Unquestionably [Havel's] finest work...Part autobiography, part history, part esthetics, [it] finds its unity in the personal qualities that catapulted a lonely dissenter...into prominence as the reluctant president of his country....Disturbing the Peace leaves no room for controversy about his place in the moral pantheon of our century."--The New York Times Book Review

"Merits our utmost attention....A truly Jeffersonian vision...That vision, so respectful of human rights in Czechoslovakia, could affect social change in any country."--Washington Post Book World
