Remembering Vaclav Havel

The greatly respected politician and writer Vaclav Havel, who died on December 18, was the author of a Cornell University Press book. We published Paul Wilson’s translation of Havel’s play The Beggar’s Opera in 2001. At the time, Milos Forman wrote, “Anyone who wants to know why it is so easy for powerful people to abuse their fellow men should read this book.”
