Magyars, Serbs, and Slovaks: An Apparent Paradox in Magyar-Slav Relationss
Pan-Slav agitation centered in those areas of Old Dualist Hungary that were heavily populated by Serbs. Yet, Magyar reaction to Pan-Slavism was largely directed against the Slovaks.
My paper would attempt to explain the reasons for this apparent paradox.
Brief Professional Bio:
I was born and raised in Budapest Hungary; I left the country in 1956. After working for nearly two years in the United States, I went back to college. to Stanford University, where I had received my graduate degrees, my MA and Ph.D.in history. I had taught at Rutgers Univer-
sity, Newark for 29 years. I published several articles, essays in edited books, and book reviews, as well as 2 books. The first one, Istvan Tisza, the Liberal Vision and Conservative Statecraft of a Magyar Nationalist was awarded the Book Prize of the Association of Hungarian-American Historians. The second book was
published in Budapest, in Hungarian translation. Its title in English would be: From Feudalism to Revolution: Hungarian Politics and Culture in the Habsburg Monarchy, 1711-1848.
