Past & Present was delighted to hear that Dr. Jakub Beneš (University of Birmingham) has been awarded the 2018 Stanley Z. Pech Prize by the Czechoslovak Studies Association.
Presented every other year to the author of the best article published in the preceding two year period on a topic related to the history, languages and cultures of Czechoslovakia. Beneš won this year’s prize for his article “The Green Cadres and the Collapse of Austria-Hungary in 1918” which appeared in Past & Present No. 236.
In recognition of this achievement and to encourage wider array of people to read this acclaimed piece of scholarship Oxford University Press our publishers have made it free to read for a limited period of time.
