Summary/Abstract: Although the weight and position of the Hungarian working class often underwent radical transformation in the course of the twentieth century, its determinant role in changes of modern society in this period is unquestionable. The main aim of this study is to give a comprehensive review of how Hungarian historiography and socio-historical scholarship presented this social group in the decades before and after the end of the Socialist regime. In addition to the literature review and historiography of the question, the study also undertakes the summary of ‘workers’ concepts in present-day social sciences.
