Summary/Abstract: The Hungarian Historiography between the World Wars. The above study is part of a historical synthesis to be prepared. The essay analyses the historiography in Hungary between the two world wars. In the fi rst half the author depicts the paramount institutions, periodicals, source collections, synthesises … etc. and gives a picture about the development of auxiliary, respectively allied sciences of history too. In the followings the author features the main streams of the period. For example the famous Geistesgeschichte school (represented mainly by Gyula Szekfű), the ethnohistory of Elemér Mályusz, the agricultural researches initiated by Sándor Domanovszky, the constitutional history school of Ferenc Eckhart and the universal history with a sociological vein, represented by István Hajnal. The study summarises briefl y some other, less dominant historians and schools also and treats some representatives of the nonoffi cial historical thinking. F. e. the national romantic school, the liberal-radicals, the populists (with László Németh in the centre) and the basicly marginal marxism.
