Politics in Hungary

By Peter A. Toma and Ivan Volgyes

Freeman, 1977, 188 pp.

Bizarre in format, comprehensive in content, coolly critical in approach, this book draws on a wealth of Hungarian material to describe the political system of contemporary Hungary. Popular acceptance - faute de mieux - gives the regime a certain legitimacy, but there is no more cynical a political culture anywhere.
