About this book

This book is the first English-language study of the social, intellectual and institutional history of sociology and the social sciences in Hungary.

 

Starting with the emergence of the discipline in the early 20th century, Karady and Nagy chart its development throughout various transformations of Hungarian society: from the liberal Dual Monarchy, through the respective Christian and Stalinist regimes, and culminating in the modern scholarly field today. Drawing on large-scale prosopographical materials, the authors use empirically-based socio-historical analysis to measure the impact of successive and radical regime changes on the country's intellectual life.

 

This will be an important and original point of reference for scholars and students of historical sociology, and Eastern European intellectual history.
