Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Prague's rebirth as a vibrant Western-style city continues to blossom, with the traces of East bloc communism increasingly hard to uncover. At the same time, the City of Spires is also returning to its roots as a decadent, jubilant place that made the word bohemia into a common noun. The smoky jazz clubs, rowdy, cruisy bars and stunning symphony halls have been restored to the spirit and role they once served. Day-trips, as well as suggested overnights from Prague, are also covered.

Previous edition: 2009.

Includes pull-out map attached to inside back cover.

Library Journal Review

This book collects an array of diverse thinkers and writers who risked the enmity of their fellow countrypeople to bring forward alternative ideas and viewpoints, even when unpopular. Edited by Kaufman, the book explores many themes, including the failure of America to deliver promised freedoms, racial and gender inequality, persecution of sexual minorities, revolutionary politics, violence, and death. It is designed to encourage the redemption of the idea of America and to reassure readers that evil is not immutable and can be overthrown. The release of this book, along with its companions, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry and The Outlaw Bible of American Literature (both edited by Kaufman), is especially relevant in a polarized age, when labels such as "activist," "deviant," "unpatriotic," and "traitorous" are hurled at anyone who does not conform, and it reminds us that alternative ideas and viewpoints are an important piece of a dialog that should not be silenced. Highly recommended for all school, public, and academic libraries.-Mark Alan Williams, Library of Congress (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
