The underlying theme in almost all of Arnošt Klma's writings on economic history is that of the transition from feudalism to capitalism. This theme is not only one of the most problematic in economic history, but also has emerged time and again in different guises as a central theme from the days of Marx, Sombart, and Weber to the most current writings on economic development, on the economics of slavery and serfdom, and in the most recent discussions of proto-industrialization. Professor Klma's work has centered on various aspects of these problems, primarily in the light of the rich history of the Bohemian crownlands in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Probably of as much importance as his large body of writings on the subject is the fact that through his participation in international conferences and his numerous contributions to journals in non-Slavic languages he has emerged from the 1950s up to the present as the major Czech voice in economic history familiarizing foreign readers with the Bohemian experience with respect to ongoing scholarly discussions.
