Engelbert Dollfuss and the Central Europe 1932-1933
Šepták, Miroslav ; Stellner, František (advisor) ; Horčička, Václav (referee)
The diploma paper which I was elaborating is focused on the first year of the governance Austrian chancellor Engelbert Doll fuss. Data of that governance were taken from unpublished sources of Czech, Austrian and German province as well as from published Czech, Austrian and German sources. In area of economy he decided to apply the strict deflation policy as a result of big economic depression. Business strategy of such country led to the only one effort - to sign new business agreements established on preferential base. At the beginning of Dollfuss's governance there existed a possibility of big coalition with social democrats but step by step the ideological difference was increasing. The more threat was coming from Nazism the more isolated Austrian policy turned. The chancellor was trying to strengthen political power of parliamentary majority which was very weak. Unsuccessfully. This non success made him put his mind to the alternative form of regime. The piece of luck helped him to get out from unpleasant situation. He took advantage of formal lack of Austrian pluralism and was continually setting up authoritative regime. In area of foreign policy he reduced options of Danube's federation as well as orientation to France because he didn't consider these possibilities profitable for Austria. He had...
The Czechoslovak-Polish dispute over Javorina within the billateral relations of the inter-war period (1921-1939)
Jakubec, Pavol ; Nálevka, Vladimír (advisor) ; Horčička, Václav (referee)
In this study, an interesting chapter of Czechoslovak foreign policy linked with the High Tatras region in the north of present-day Slovakia is questioned - Polish-Czechoslovak dispute on Javorina. Unique natural setting of this mountainous pocket and a bit non-standard ethnical conditions of the periphery (the locals were at best amidst their identification with a modern political nation) played their part in the collision of Czechoslovak and Polish aspirations. The following dispute has broken twice in the inter-war period, thus being a question of recurring interest. Though not of a decisive importance, the Javorina question was one of symptomatic dissonances in the relations between Prague and Warsaw. The story of the controversy about the village and its environs goes back to the formative months of the both Slavic states succeeding the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. In absence of Czechoslovakian troops, the whole country of northern Scepusia (better-known in German as Zips), as far as the towns of Stará Ľubovňa and Kežmarok on the river Poprad, was taken over by Polish troops in November-December 1918. Czechoslovakia did not want to give up the territory at any rate, and, with a slight delay, examined a local campaign to push the Poles north of historical Galician-Hungarian border. Collision was presented...
The U. S. Grand Strategy at the Beginnin of the Cold War, 1945-1853
Křiklán, Jan ; Horčička, Václav (advisor) ; Koura, Jan (referee)
(English): The Cold War is a major milestone in world history and the general history of mankind. He created a world order that confirmed Western hegemony over the world for decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union. However, the Cold War did not emerge from nothing. It was created by people after World War II (Americans, Russians, British etc.). Since the defeat of Germany was inevitable, the Allies, together with their disputes on individual issues (Iran, Turkey and Greece), began to create a spawn for the next conflict, which we call the Cold War. This struggle for domination over the world lasted for decades and cost many lives in the name of dubious ideas about social engineering, where it is possible to ,,revolutionize" society from above or manage life according to abstract economic calculations. Behind the phrases of progress was the great power desires of people and politicians, emphasized by the individual ideologies of liberal democracy and Stalinist communism.

Czech Aristocracy and the Runciman Mission, 1938
Šebková, Jarmila ; Horčička, Václav (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee)
The bachelor thesis analyses the relationships between the Runciman Mission and the representatives of the Czech aristocracy during the Sudeten crisis. It charts the stay of British emissary within Czechoslovakia from August to September 1938 and it mostly focuses on his connections with the local aristocracy. Lord Walter Runciman and his team spent their weekends in the residences of the pro-German aristocracy, but they were also in touch with the aristocracy loyal to the Czechoslovak government. The thesis strives for answering the question to what extent the Czech aristocracy influenced British mediators' attitude to the Sudeten problem. The first chapter deals with the position of the Sudeten German minority and the aristocracy class in the First Czechoslovak Republic and it explains their attitude to the new ruling class. The second chapter elucidates the causes of the Sudeten crisis and the involvement of the Great Britain in the political development in the central Europe. The third chapter, which represents the mainstay of the thesis, analyses the stay of the British mission in Czechoslovakia focusing on its leisure activities in the company of the local aristocracy. The last chapter deals with the breakdown of the mission and it analyses the final report of Lord Runciman from 21st...

Jarošová, Veronika ; Koura, Jan (advisor) ; Horčička, Václav (referee)
The presented bachelor thesis deals with the world chess championship between Robert Fischer and Boris Spassky in 1972 within the context of the sports rivalry between the US and the USSR during the Cold War era. The thesis analyses the roots and manifestations of the sports competition between the United States and the Soviet Union, it explores the differences in approach to sporting representation and chess in both states. This work also captures the cultural and sports exchange after World War II which led to mutual visits of the American and Soviet chess teams in their respective countries. Attention is paid to the causes of the media attention devoted to the championship of 1972, which include the then-existing Soviet dominance in world chess, the amount of prize money, and the eccentric behaviour of the American chess player Robert Fischer. A fair amount of attention is given to the depiction of the championship in the American, Czechoslovak, and Soviet press, and it focuses on the way in which both players were portrayed as representatives of their countries. Key words: cold war - propaganda - chess - Robert James Fischer - Boris Vasilyevich Spassky
