Abstract

Using a wide range of previously unpublished archival, written, and visual sources, the book offers the first gendered history of the aftermath of the First World War in Hungary. It examines women's activism during the post-war revolutions and counter-revolution. Szapor convincingly argues that conservative ideas on family and gender roles, tied to the nation's regeneration and tightly woven into the fabric of the interwar period's right-wing, extreme nationalistic ideology, greatly contributed to the success of the authoritarian regime of Miklós Horthy. The book looks at the long shadow that anti-liberal, nationalist notions of gender and family cast on Hungarian society and provides an explanation for their persistent appeal in the post-Communist era. (Publisher)
