Capek, Karel: War with the Newts. v1. 02 Feb 2008
The book is an amusing satire of the society and politics of the 1930s.
A good read, if a bit unusual.
Čapek also coined the word "robot" in his play "R.U.R."(Rossum's Universal Robots) to mean automaton. In the original Czech, "robota" means drudgery or servitude.
