National identity and historiography

“„The chapters of this book intend to review the historiographical evaluation of an era, namely the Turkish regime in Hungary; to examine the vision of the past provided to different generations of historians and national strategy thinkers as empirical-historical raw material for analysis as well as a starting point and a mirror to understand their own era. (…) “The reader of this book will hopefully be pleasantly surprised to find, instead of dry historiographical and biographical data, the main problems of each historcal period leading to his own contemporary era. In these historiographical studies, I was probably not examining the commitment of writers towards historical schools or their proficiency in methodology or reading but rather the political factors influencing Hungarian intellectuals in almost the same way in every era.”
