Seeking Freedom and Justice for Hungary

Full Product Description

Seeking Freedom and Justice for Hungary is the story of the vigorous Catholic worker movement developed in Hungary after the devastations of World War I, unique in the history of twentieth-century Europe. It emerged from the revival of the institution founded by Adolph Kolping, a contemporary of Karl Marx in Germany, to seek a Christian solution to the worker crisis brought on by the Industrial Revolution. The Hungarian plan envisioned a strong middle class of independent entrepreneurs and an economic system between Marxism and the monopolistic capitalism then dominant in Europe. It was reaching maturity when halted by Germany's invasion of Hungary in 1944 and then destroyed by subsequent Soviet occupation and Communist rule. The story is told through the life of its national leader, John Madl-Mike, whose experiences enabled him later in the United States to make original observations on American capitalism with vital support for the anti-Communist cause.

Seeking Freedom and Justice for Hungary by Valerie Mike was published by University Press of America in November 2015. The ISBN for Seeking Freedom and Justice for Hungary is 9780761865636.
