dc.descriptionItalian aggression against Abyssinia (Ethiopia) in 1935 placed Czechoslovak diplomacy in a predicament.On the one hand, as a member state of the League of Nations, the First Czechoslovak Republicwas obliged to preserve the integrity and independence of other League members, including Abyssinia,and to apply at least economic sanctions against any aggressor. On the other hand, as a productof the First World War, Czechoslovakia was highly interested in maintaining the post-war orderin Central Europe against growing German revisionism. Here, apart from France and Great Britain,Czechoslovak diplomats put their hopes in Italy as well and were particularly anxious to gain Mussolinifor the defence of Austria. In light of this dilemma, the article examines the attitude and behaviourof foreign minister Edvard Beneš, who was not only Czechoslovakia’s leading diplomat butalso the country’s principal actor in the League of Nations, where the Abyssinian crisis had been onthe agenda since the beginning of 1935. As far as Beneš’ role in the League is concerned, the study focuseson the sixteenth Assembly in autumn 1935, of which Beneš was elected president. While previousworks on Czechoslovakia’s Abyssinian policy are mainly based on documents from the Archivesof the Czechoslovak Foreign Ministry, this article also uses sources from the League of Nations Archivesin Geneva and the Archives of the Masaryk-Institute in Prague.
