Summary
"This book explores the account of responsibility supported by the work of Vaclav Havel, anti-communist dissident, playwright, former President of the Czech Republic, and political thinker. Havel's work stands as a remarkable articulation of responsible action under the extreme circumstances of Eastern European totalitarianism, but the value of his inquiry extends beyond that time and place"--
