Hungarian Intellectuals in Exile and the Challenge of Communism
"Superb and moving."—István Deák, East European Politics and Societies
"Pioneering!... A stimulating and skillfully written analysis of the Hungarian émigré political left."
Scarred by Europe's wars, Hungary produced an extraordinary number of the twentieth century's leading intellectuals, many of whom lived outside their native land. In exile first from Hungary and then from their adopted homes in Germany and Austria, these thoughtful men and women led some of the key political discussions of their day. All of them spoke in one voice to condemn nazism, but their attitudes toward communism differed. For some, the "Soviet Experiment" promised utopia; to others it was another form of totalitarianism.
