Summary/Abstract: According to a view widely shared both by ordinary people and social scientists in Hungary, Hungarian socialism, beginning from the late 1960’s, created a unique atmosphere within the communist system of the Eastern Bloc. The main feature of this “Hungarian model” of socialism was its capability to transform the repressive, totalitarian aspects of the communist dictatorship, characteristic of the 1950’s, into a more liberal form of authoritarianism.
