This memoir is an invaluable source about Hungary's fate in World War II. Ullein-Reviczky's work was based partly on the public and private documents he succeeded in saving throughout the war and his long years of exile in Turkey, Switzerland, France and Britain where he died. Written by a well-informed insider and a shrewd observer, this book remained essentially unknown in the English-speaking world. Antal Ullein-Reviczky's memoirs represent an important source of the history of Hungary from German war through Russian peace, giving a unique insight into the Hungarian tragedy".

This important work by American historian Jeffrey Taylor, who spent the last two decades in Hungary and earned his PhD at Central European University in Budapest, serves to detail the nineteenth-century origin of the art market in a Central European nation as its economy was shifting from total dependence on agriculture to a mixed industrial/agricultural model during the Industrial Revolution. The creation of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in 1867 provided Hungary with a measure of equality with Austria, initiating a period when the social and cultural development of Hungary and its newly emerging professional and merchant classes provided a new marketplace, which while bourgeois in nature nevertheless brought "art" to a greater portion of the population. Taylor provides us with a fascinating history, beginning in eighteen hundred, of the art market of Hungary, of the rise of modernism and its conflict with traditional elements.

"During the years of 1949-1950 in communist-ruled Hungary not only individuals but whole families - including babies - were considered liable for hindering the building of the 'people's democracy'. The cause for eviction from the dwelling-place became 'being of class alien descent'; its consequence was the total confiscation of property and possessions without court order, by administrative decree. This volume dela with the database concerning the the deportees from Budapest based on available archival sources. The study following it presents the forced relocations in Romania between 1949 and 1951. The last part of the book presents flashbacks to different episodes in the Zichy families' lives.

This book examines the effect of post-Soviet transitions on current problem solving trends with regards to world capitalism. The fall of Soviet communism left liberal capitalism as the dominant blueprint from which to construct economic development policies. Using Central Europe as an example it is shown that the application of the Western liberal-capitalist model has not been without its difficulties. This book endeavors to place the changes to the global political economy, since 1989, in a theoretical and historical context. . (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9780312234638 20160527
