The compilation of basic facts, intended as a guide for social studies teachers, provides a concise data survey on Czechoslovakia that relates to the history of the United States. The purpose is to furnish information based on both American and Czechoslovakian sources. In an outlined form social, economic, and political facts are provided along with additional information on geography, population, and history. Cultural information on religion, traditions, languages, popular foods, sports, and holidays contribute to an understanding of the people and country. Lists of persons who contributed to and are representative of Czechoslovakia such as former monarchs, presidents, and outstanding and famous personalities born in and from the country are given. Since 5% of the people in Texas are of Czechoslovakian extraction, an attempt is made to show the relationship between Texas and Central Europe which began in the early 16th century. Lists of the most famous personalities from Czechoslovakia now living in the United States and ten greatest moments in the history of American-Czechoslovakian relationship comprise the latter half of the volume. Special features include a short bibliography of Czechoslovakian sources and a listing of collections of available teaching materials pertaining to Czechoslovakia located in the U.S. and Czechoslovakia.
