    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 51.95

    Unlike in other countries of Eastern Europe where the opposition to communism came in the form of single mass movements led by charismatic leaders such as Václav Havel and Lech Wa??sa, in Hungary the opposition was very fragmented, brought together and made effective only by the authoritative, significant but relatively unknown Árpád Göncz, who subsequently... more...

    Anthem Press 2014; US$ 99.00

  • Britain and the Occupation of Austria,1943-45by Alice Hills

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 122.00

    The relationship of policy to strategy is a central issue in international studies. Using the little-known but highly relevant example of British planning for the occupation in 1945, the book provides a case-study in the practicalities of 'liberating' enemy territory. It looks at the way in which policy was developed and then reconciled with those... more...

  • Polemical Austriaby Anthony Bushell

  • Nobility, Land and Service in Medieval Hungaryby Dr Martyn Rady

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 170.00

    The absence in medieval Hungary of fief-holding and vassalage has often been cited by historians as evidence of Hungary's early 'deviation' from European norms. This new book argues that medieval Hungary was, nevertheless, familiar with many institutions characteristic of noble society in Europe. Contents include the origins of the Hungarian nobility... more...
