About the Idea of “Transylvanianism”


Language: English
Subject(s): History
Page Range: 7-16
No. of Pages: 10
Keywords: , , , , ,
Summary/Abstract: After the Paris Peace Conference sanctioned the new political and state realities in Central Europe, Hungary embarked upon a perilous program aimed to “revise” the provisions laid down by the Trianon Peace Treaty (4 June 1920) and to restore the medieval borders of the “St. Stephen’s Crown”. Revisionism came out not only as a foreign policy objective but also as a keynote of the social-political system in inter-war Hungary, active in all state activities, embraced by the quasi-totality of the Hungarian society and which gained precedence over any other commandments or principles, be them moral or whatever. Revisionism grew into a real national obsession which disregarded any critical approach.

Keith Hitchins, Ionel Brătianu: Romania (London: Haus Publishing, 2011)


Language: English
Subject(s): Review
Page Range: 179-181
No. of Pages: 3
Keywords: , , ,
Summary/Abstract: Except for some minor mistakes (Béla Kun was the éminence grise and commissar of the Hungarian left-wing government of 1919 but not the Prime Minister) the whole enterprise of the author is well documented and balanced, standing out as perhaps the best synthetic approach on Ionel Brătianu’s role in Romanian politics. One can only hope that a Romanian edition of the book is already in sight.
