ZOUREK, Michal. Uruguay

1st ed. Prague: Libri, Metropolitan University Prague Press, 2015. ISBN 978-80-7277-543-9

This book, through literature and archival sources, analyses the historical development of Uruguay, the smallest Spanish-speaking country of South America. It builds on previous work by Czech authors dedicated to Uruguayan issues, as well as deals with many aspectsof the country's political and cultural life which have not yet been addressed in the Czech Republic. The work retains the standard breakdown of the book series "A Brief History of States". In addition to the chronological development of the country, the text is supplemented by a brief overview of Czech-Uruguayan relations, encyclopaedic information, basic information for tourists, the most important words and phrases, and an overview of Uruguayan presidents.
