Jaroslv Krejci was born in 1916 in what, two years later became Czechoslovakia. After studying law and economics at the Charles University in Prague he was employed in state economic institutions. As his views clashed with those of the Czechoslovakian Communist regime he was made a political prisoner (1954 - 60). In 1968 (The Prague Spring) he returned to academic work. When the Warsaw Pact forces invaded Czechoslovakia, Krejci went to exile and settled in England, where Lancaster University awarded him, in 1976, a full professorship and, in 2000, an honorary doctorate. His work ranges from economic studies at the beginning, on to religious studies, global issues etc. In 1998, President Vaclav Havel presented him with the Medal of National Merit.
His recent publications include:
The Human Predicament. Its Changing Image
Spiritual Foundations of Civilizational Plurality.
The Paths of Civilization. Understanding the Currents of History.
