Abstract(s)
Golo Mann isn't connected with the Bohemian-Czech history only by his biography as an German exiled author but also as an historian. In his fundamental and outstanding biography "Wallenstein" he realized a life-long fascination and occupation with this character. But this work, published in 1969, is not just a journey into the past of the Great European War with its outbreak at Bílá Hora, but with a contemporary view on country and politics of Czechoslovakia in the second half of the 1960s. Golo Mann opened the bohemian landscape of the 17th century for perspectives afterwards, up to his and the countries present during the "Prague Spring". History and Contemporary History cross each other and give an image for the meaning of continuity.
