9 LOEBL, EUGENE AND POKORNY, DUSAN. Sentenced And Tried: The Stalinist Purges In Czechoslovakia.
Eleck, London: 1969. First English Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
The author, a member of the Czech government at the time, 1952, belonged to a group (amongst whom were Rudolf Slansky, Secretary of the Communist Party, and Vladimir Clementis, Foreign Minister) whose members were chosen in Moscow to serve as scapegoats for the faltering economy of Czechoslovakia, and as a warning to other countries who might wish to emulate Tito's Yugoslavia. The book details the carefully staged trial (which has gone down in history as the Slansky trial), in which the depth of degradation to which Communist judicial prosecutors had sunk is glaringly demonstrated. Translated from the German.
