This overview of the history of the Sokol, the Czech nationalist gymnastic organization, from its founding in 1862 until the outbreak of World War I emphasizes its role in articulating national values and facilitating mass mobilization in the political context of the multinational Habsburg state. By including background on the German "Turnverein", this study goes beyond the Czech context to explore the intersection of gymnastics and mass nationalism in Central Europe.Biografía del autor:
