Minařík, Martin ; Kubů, Eduard (advisor) ; Jančík, Drahomír (referee) ; Vilímek, Tomáš (referee)
This dissertation has the ambition to contribute to the understanding of the economic system in Czechoslovakia during the post-war socialist transformation and the subsequent consolidation of the communist regime in the 1950s. The means of knowledge is the state economic plan, which has gradually become one of the key determinants of the Czechoslovak economy after the Second World War. The process of forming a system of state-controlled economy is monitored from the field of view of selected industry - brewing. The importance of the brewing industry consists in the deep-rooted specifics of beer consumption in Czech society. The research focuses on the penetration of post-war national, social and economic transformations through Czechoslovak production and beer consumption. It focuses on the limits of business freedom in brewing industry in the period of the Third Republic, transformation of private enterprise into collective forms of ownership, specifics and detail of the state plan and its formation in the context of crucial domestic political and international events. The results of the dissertation provide information about the mechanism of state economic planning, the development of traditional Czech industry and beer consumption in the period of state socialism, and at the same time provide...

"He who does not work, does not eat" : Phenomenon of "social parasitism" in socialist Czechoslowakia
Mejzr, Martin ; Kubů, Eduard (advisor) ; Jančík, Drahomír (referee)
Presented diploma thesis is occupied with issues of so-called "social parasitism" in the socialist Czechoslovakia in early normalization era. It follows existence of a law term "social parasitism", or more precisely independent paragraph which criminalized "fishy ways of livelihood" and "avoiding righteous job" within the Czechoslovakia penal code. I would like to observe this marginal social phenomenon in a broad perspective. So-called "social parasitism" is understood as a normative, disciplinary and symbolical category which defined basic value hierarchy of socialistic society and had to help make a new consensus for conditions consolidations in 1968. The focal point of the thesis is considering on the environment of Prague in 1969-75 with an aim to analyse the function and role of "social parasitism" in political administration of district authorities, media discourse of local press and in a practice of security authority. The "social parasitism" oppression is explained as an attempt of communist dictatorship and its institutions for creating a moral panic as a restoration tool of undermined legitimacy power in the eyes of Czechoslovakian society after 1968. Key words: social parasitism, criminality, social disciplination, moral panic, Normalization time in Czechoslovakia

Hořejš, Miloš ; Kubů, Eduard (advisor) ; Jančík, Drahomír (referee) ; Hallon, Ľudovít (referee)
Titel of dissertation: Nazi Germanisation and Settlement Policy in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia This work focuses on land and settlement policies in the territory of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. They are treated as an integral part of a unified Germanisation policy which the Nazi regime had implemented within a broader territory of the German Reich. The aim of this study is to evaluate the structure and organisation of the settlement policy and mechanisms of its functioning on both lower and higher levels within the context of administration and implementation of the settlement process. Germanisation was, within the territory of Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, one of the key aspects of German economic policy. Its implementation was based on a combination of assimilation, evacuation, and physical liquidation. In practice, Germanisation measures in the Protectorate took either of the three following forms: 1) transfer of share ownership, 2) Aryanisation of Jewish property, 3) a settlement of Germans on Czech-held land. This sequence more or less corresponded also to the sequence in which the individual measures were to be applied in practice. It was envisioned that Germanisation and settlement policy would be fully implemented and completed only after the end of the war...

Birth and function of foreign trade monopoly for textile goods
Roušar, Jan ; Kubů, Eduard (advisor) ; Jančík, Drahomír (referee)
This work treats of Centrotex Society in the interval from its creation in 1948 until realisation of Rozsypal's economic reform in 1958. Centrotex Society is an example of a company of a foreign trade in the era of central planned economy, which was being functional during a communist regime between 1948 and 1989. In my diploma theses I intended to explain commercial activities of Centrotex Society in this period, changes of its commercial strategy and reforms which it passed through. Centrotex Society was founded in 1948 after nationalization of foreign trade, it dealed with textile raw materials and products. In the sphere of textile raw materials it focused especially on import because in Czechoslovakia there were not (except for flax) suitable conditions for their production. On the other hand, in the sphere of textile products the primary function of Centrotex Society was their export which brought foreign currency to Czechoslovakia. The break of 1940s and 1950s could be called "an era of founding". This period is defined by searching the most suitable way of organising a foreign trade company, which meant often changes of plans and even organizational structure of the company. The situation was also complicated because of the atmosphere of stalinism. It caused that nobody was brave enough to call the...

The aim of the dissertation is to understand the formation and development of the market for construction materials (cement, lime and bricks) in Cisleithania and Czechoslovakia.

The dissertation contentrates on the basic market conditions and market structure, as well as the strategies of the market players. The market performance (the impacts of the construction materials industry on the Cisleithanian and Czechoslovak economies) is also included. The research is limited by the period of the so-called Great Depression (construction materials began to be produced on the industrial basis) and the turn of 1938/1939, marking the instrumentalization of the Czech lands in favor of the German economy. The dissertation is based on methods of industrial economics (Structure-Conduct-Performance paradigm), economics, economic geography and traditional methodology of economic history (especially business history, hermeneutic and statistical method).

"Heimat in Ketten": Development of ideological construction of german borderland novel in the First Republic
Pípalová, Anna ; Kubů, Eduard (advisor) ; Štolleová, Barbora (referee)
(in English) The presented diploma thesis analyzes German borderland novels (Grenzlandroman) of the interwar period, namely Robert Hohlbaum's Grenzland (1921), Rudolf Haas' Heimat in Ketten (1924), Das Dorf an der Grenze (1936) by Bruno Nowak, writing under the pseudonym Gottfried Rothacker, and Die Brüder Tommahans (1937) by Wilhelm Pleyer. As a literary genre, the borderland novel took conflict between nations as its central theme, while addressing contemporary or recent social evolution. German borderland novels from interwar Czechoslovakia give evidence of how not only the authors but also the whole social groups reflected societal changes in the aftermath of 1918. An analysis of the narratives typical of this segment of literature confirms its relevance to the formation of the German population's identity in interwar Czechoslovakia. Stereotyping mechanisms play a crucial role in instilling abstract notions of nationality in the everyday perception of ordinary people. The borderland novels' narrative practices contribute to the reconstruction and fixation of this stereotypical perception of reality. This perception not only affects the way individuals and social groups view their surrroundings, but also interferes with the interpretation of events. Analysis of the selected texts enables us to...
