Hungary in the Cold War, 1945-1956: Between the United States and the Soviet Union

Synopsis

"Based on new archival evidence, this book examines Soviet empire building in Hungary and the American response to it. The book analyzes why, given all its idealism and power, the U. S. failed even in its minimal aims concerning the states of Eastern Europe. Eventually both the United States and the Soviet Union pursued power politics: the Soviets in a naked form, the U. S. subtly, but both with little regard for the fate of Hungarians." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
