Memoirs of Michael Karolyi

By

Dutton, 1957, 392 pp.

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.
