A Concise History of Hungary

Etukansi
Cambridge University Press, 30.4.2001 - 370 sivua
This book offers a comprehensive thousand-year history of the land, people, society, culture and economy of Hungary, from its nebulous origins in the Ural Mountains to the 1988 elections. It tells above all the thrilling story of a people which became a great power in the region and then fought against--and was invaded by--Ottomans, Germans and Soviets. The Hungarian people preserved nevertheless a continuous individuality through its Ural-born language and a specifically Hungaro-European culture. Free and independent since 1990, Hungary continues to seek its rightful position in Europe.
