The individual topics in the publication are based on the author’s original studies published in Czech and foreign magazines between 1965 and 2009. The more complex essays including notes from the present represent the author’s view on a certain topic.

The book is completed with approximately a hundred photographs out of which a large number depicts historical documents and objects never published before. Some pictures come from 19th century, others were taken by amateurs. Therefore their quality is not perfect in some cases.
