Summary/Abstract: The author examines the possibility of researching the mutual relations of the bourgeoisieand workers on the local level, taking into account the availability of sources and the likelihood of receiving inspiration from foreign research. The author’s starting point is the class theory of Max Weber with his concept of the “contact”. The Czech, or Austro-Hungarian, environment offers us a very interesting background, as it combines the influence of a conservative state with liberal-oriented bourgeois governments in the larger municipalities. Furthermore, the development of the working class was in many respects unique within Europe. This was the result of several factors, including delayed industrialization, the remaining small-scale and home production, as well as the political fractionalism of the workers movement.
