Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Twenty eminent and sober historians (14 Hungarian, four American, one Canadian, one Austrian) have contributed their scholarship to this weighty, erudite, but readily accessible general history of Hungary. The volume has been carefully edited "in accordance with specified uniform guidelines" to avoid the disjuncture sometimes achieved by collections of essays, and the result is a successful introductory history aimed at collegiate undergraduates and better-informed or interested general readers. Chronology of coverage extends deep beyond Jorg Hoensch's History of Modern Hungary: 1867-1986 ( LJ 10/1/88), and the analyses coordinate nicely the political, military, social, and economic components of Hungary's long and colorful history. A helpful bibliography of reasonable proportions includes many English citations.
- James B. Street, Santa Cruz P.L., Cal.

As a 1st generation Hungarian American, I wanted to learn more about my history. This book gave me an excellent in depth overview of the tumultuous history of this often overlooked nation.

This is the finest single-volume history of Hungary in the English language. Highly recommended work, by one of the most incisive historians of central and south-eastern Europe around.

Format: Paperback
This book, written during the communist era, mostly by people in high positions in that regime and their American fellow travelers, reflects that perspective. It is multicultural and politically correct.
Just one example of their sinister multicultural views. They talk about the six NATIONS that make up Hungary and complain about "Hungarian ambitions of hegemony," ignoring the history of how these minorities were allowed to settle in the country.
A great disappointment!

For my purposes it was just ok. I was hoping for more pre-history and migratory origins of Hungarians than this more modern book included. But it was cheap and I got some info.
