    I’ll second Patrick. Thanks especially for a series good enough to teach from. I plan to use it, along with “The Power of the Powerless,” in a politics course on protest that I’ll be teaching in Japan starting in April.

  3. Mark Edwards says:

    Thank you both so much. I really appreciate it. I wish I had had time to write more cogent replies to your comments, and to more fully give Havel his due. Perhaps we can continue the conversation via email.

    This has been a great series. Thank you for putting it together, Mark.

    I really appreciated the series too and may work it into my human rights courses this semester. BTW I spent a year and a half in the Czech Republic in the early 90’s and got the chance at least once to shake Havel’s hand. I also met his brother and other friends from the underground days who were less busy running a country. I was lucky to be there when the first elections were held — it was quite a heady time.

    It does remind one of human rights law and, more recently, aspects of the “Arab Spring.” See also
