Hungary: Between Democracy and Authoritarianism

Lauren Stackpoole

How did Hungary, the most promising of the Soviet satellite states with it’s “goulash communism”, slide backwards toward authoritarianism after the fall of the Soviet Union?

In his latest book, Hungary: Between Democracy and Authoritarianism, the Hungarian-born, Austrian  journalist Paul Lendvai examines this very question. He offers a scathing look at the political developments (and setbacks) in the country since the fall of Communism. It is a no-holds-barred guide to the rise and fall of Hungarian political parties since 1989.
