Kniha je věnována národní identitě Čechů a Češek z různých pohledů. Lidé mají tolik sociálních identit, kolika sociálních skupin jsou členy. Hlavní pozornost je věnována sociální skupině zvané národ, sociálním emocím (národní hrdosti), které lidé k národu mají, národním předsudkům a stereotypům. Autorky a autoři knihy zkoumali, kdo je považován za opravdového Čecha či Češku, jaké postoje mají lidé k cizincům, kteří přicházejí pracovat a žít do České republiky.

Kniha, jež vznikla v rámci projektu „Dějiny a současnost české sociologie“, zkoumá vliv sociologie na jiné vědní obory (případně vliv oboustranný), a to specificky v Českých zemích, resp.

Zabývá se doposud nepříliš prozkoumanou problematikou vlivu sociologie (a to primárně sociologie české) na vybrané vědní obory v českém prostředí, její intervence a vstupování do nich: konkrétně do uměnovědných oborů, etologie a archeologie.

The central empirical puzzle addressed in this book is why are Czech citizens’ attitudes towards key facets of democracy so similar under socialist democracy in 1968 and liberal democracy in 2008? Examining unique survey datasets from the late 1960s and 2008 this book reveals that Czech and Slovak citizens’ political attitudes can justifiably be characterised in terms of stability.
