Formerly a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and situated in the very heart of Central Europe, modern-day Hungary is bordered by Austria, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, Ukraine and Slovenia. Hungary's economy and educational base are among the strongest in Central Europe, and its post-Communist struggle to move to a market economy is being strongly encouraged by the U.S. and the nations of Western Europe. One of the most vibrant and historically fascinating (and complex) areas of the world, Hungary and the forces that have shaped her current political framework are a timely focus for this needed work. The Historical Dictionary of Hungary provides a handy resource to this small European country, examining the key events, people and places crucial to its history. An extensive introduction leads the reader through the origins of the Hungarians in the Magyar people up to the present-day post-communist period. A listing of heads of state is provided, along with abbreviations and acronyms, maps, a chronology and a glossary of geographical terms. Entries describe important dates and figures in Hungarian history, and refer to related entries, thus providing the researcher with a solid background from which to continue research. The substantial bibliography lists relevant books and articles for further reading. A must for any public or university library.
