Communism in Hungary: From Kun to Kadar

By Bennett Kovrig
Hoover Press, 1979
525 pp. $10.95

The most thorough history of the Hungarian Communist Party and portrait of its leadership yet done in a Western language, although not entirely replacing that of Miklos Molnár (noted in Foreign Affairs, Fall 1979). Many secrets, especially about relations with the Soviet Communists, necessarily remain unrevealed, but Kovrig has assembled a great quantity of data, organized it well, and written objectively.
