Tory Historian is off tomorrow for a couple of days to Prague. Sadly, most of the time will be taken up by work and meetings but there will be some time for walks and sitting in cafes without which no visit to Central Europe is complete.

Two books will be in the luggage: Peter Demetz's "Prague in Black and Gold" and Roger Scruton's "Beauty", just received for review.

The picture is of the Jan Hus Memorial, a slightly less well known landmark in that city.


  1. So was the Demetz book good?

  2. It is quite interesting as far as I have got with it - reading on back in London. He spends a lot of time unravelling myths and trying to get to the truth behind them.
