Václav Havel's meditation on political dissent – the rituals of its suppression, and the sparks that reignite it – would prove the guiding manifesto for uniting solidarity movements across the Soviet Union. A portrait of activism in the face of falsehood and intimidation, The Power of the Powerless remains a rousing call against the allure of apathy.

Translated from the czech by Paul Wilson, with an introduction by Timothy Snyder.
