From the Publisher"The study under review here is a fine account of the struggle for Hungary's future after World War II, a transitional period when noncommunists believed they could overcome overwhelming odds and obtain a modicum of independence and political pluralism for their country. While more information might well surface one day from Soviet archives and modify what we now know, and other scholars might and indeed should scrutinize the motives and activities of the United States in greater detail, Hungary from the Nazis to the Soviets is going to the be the standard work on the subject for years to come." - Charles Gati, Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Washington, D.C.
"Kenez deserves praise for judicious and clearly written account of Hungary's traumatic absorption into the Soviet-Communist sphere"
Bennet Kovrig, The International History Review
"Illuminating book....a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate."
-Mark Kramer, American Historical Review
"In this lucid, thorough text, Peter Kenez argues that Moscow, not Budapest, decided Hungary's postwar fate, but also that Soviet policy was improvisational rather than deterministic." -Andrea Orzoff, German Studies Review
