A thoughtful analysis of an important instance of the growing authoritarian threat to Europe.

From the publisher and author:

How has Hungary, a country once in the vanguard of political and economic reform under Communism, become a chilling example of the new threats confronting democracy in Central Europe? The return of Hungary’s demons of the past–nationalism, ethnic hatred, deeply-rooted corruption and authoritarian tendencies–has engendered international concern. Since winning a two-thirds majority in parliament in the spring of 2010, the dynamic right-wing populist Prime Minister Viktor Orban has embarked on a sweeping and ruthless concentration of power and has sought to reshape the state in his own image.
