Memoirs of Michael Karolyi

Dutton, 1957
392 pp. $6.50

In this autobiography of the late Count Karolyi, who had two brief and disastrous periods of political activity in Hungary separated by years of exile, one gains a most revealing and touching picture of a significant if rather exceptional strand of twentieth-century political attitudes: the humane aristocrat who turns from his class and takes up the ideals of Socialism only to find his ideals betrayed by the Communists.
