In a moment of historic threat and uncertainty in mainland Europe, this collection, makes the case for the ‘small countries’ of Central Europe as the nucleus of European values and a lightning rod for its potential dangers, where language and culture play an active role in affirming national identity and democracy is under continued threat from the threat of Russian oppression.
