Chapter Summary

Soviet cultural experts often made use of quantitative evidence to explain the current state of book-related affairs when they expounded on the profound difference between the faults of the pre-communist period and the achievements of the communist era. A complex relationship existed between cultural development in 18th-century Bohemia, the reforms introduced by the absolutist Habsburg Monarchy, and emerging Czech nationalism. The period of Josephine reforms is a good example of the kinds of controversies that can be generated by any interventionist and regulatory policies, particularly in the area of the cultural and intellectual life of a certain community. The cultural scene and particularly the print media played a major part in the fight over the nation's future. The re-defining of the publishing entity that actually produces the printed text is of key significance for understanding any system of centrally controlled textual production.

Keywords: centrally controlled textual production; cultural development; Czech nationalism
