  • Geza Perjes, The Fall of The Medieval Kingdom of Hungary: Mohacs 1526 - Buda 1541(165 clicks)
    "The Decline of the Medieval Kingdom of Hungary, originally entitled Mohacs, is a meticulous reconstruction of events of some four and half centuries ago by a practical and theoretical expert of military science; it is also a cardinal piece in a historic-political debate that pushed history writing into the forefront of public interest in the Hungary of the 1970s; and,because of these first two functions, it is a major statement about historical and not-so-historical choices and alternatives of an endangered country in the middle of central Europe."
  • Gyula László, The Magyars of Conquest-Period Hungary(162 clicks)
    László, "a historian, has argued that the Magyars arrived in two separate waves, centuries apart, a notion which is still controversial.

The excerpts printed here are from a book to be published in English by Corvina later this year."
  • History of German Settlements in Southern Hungary(174 clicks)
    By Sue Clarkson. At the end of the nineteenth century, there were more than two million Germans living in Hungary. During the eighteenth century, the Habsburg monarchy of Austria, which ruled Hungary at that time, had enticed Germans to emigrate to the unsettled lands of Southern Hungary, which had been devastated by over 150 years of Turkish occupation. From 1711 to 1750, approximately 800 villages were founded in Hungary by German settlers. The Banat Province was one of the primary areas of settlement.

  • Hungary and the limits of Habsburg authority(168 clicks)
    "The previous lecture tried to explain both the strengths and the shortcomings of the Ottoman Empire in terms of the principles behind it. In the case of Turkey, those principles were dynasty, religion and military prowess. This lecture tries to do the same for the Habsburg Monarchy, also known at various times as the Austrian Empire and Austria-Hungary. Once again, this was a complex state organized along lines very different from those of the modern nation-state. In the case of the Habsburgs, the three operating principles were the dynasty, class, and reform. All three of these pillars of Habsburg statecraft require careful explanation, but when that is done we should (once again) see some clues behind both the early success and the later failure of an empire."
