The History of Hungary

Prof. Dr. Peter Haslinger

The goal of the book project is to produce an integrated representation of Hungarian history from the country's beginnings until after political unification in 1989/90. The aim of the project is not only to give an overview of the general political and historical processes as well as the most important events in Hungarian history, but also to consider the history of culture and ideas as well as that of climate, economics and social history. In addition, the book project aims to place the specific historical development of Hungary within the context of Eastern Central Europe, thereby exploring the wider interrelation of political and socio-economic factors as well as intellectual history.
