Between Russia and the West: Hungary and the Illusions of Peacemaking, 1945-1947
By Stephan D. Kertesz
Notre Dame Press, 1984, 320 pp. $20.00 Purchase

A former Hungarian diplomat, now an American professor, combines personal recollection with historical research and a sure sense of political reality to give us a revealing account of the fate of Hungary, a nation with very little control over its own destiny, drawn into world war by Germany and emerging from it under the domination of Russia. The story, especially the way in which the victorious powers dealt with each other in trying to deal with prostrated Hungary, is worth telling and is well told.
