The third volume of the book edition of the texts of the legendary radio programme by the President of the Republic Václav Havel, supplemented by a rich note apparatus and index, is, among other things, a unique chronicle of the last federal "Czechoslovak" year.

From the very beginning, the decision on publishing a book of radio programs collided with the fact that Václav Havel never considered the speeches and interviews for the media as part of his work. As a writer and playwright, he considered the spoken word to be a specific genre that could not withstand the criteria of well-thought-out formulations of written text.

Václav Havel's work is contained in his Writings (Torst 1999, resp. 2008), but other sources are important for understanding his thinking, including interviews for print and electronic media.
