Summary/Abstract: György Haraszti is an outstanding member of the middle-aged generation of historians. The articles in this book investigate the milestones along the symbiotic process of co-existence of Jews and Hungarians during the 1000 years of Hungarian history. This collection contains his writings of the last ten years on the shared Jewish-Hungarian history. He draws on the latest findings of Hungarian and international historical research, and he also takes a new approach to 18th-century Jewish migration into Hungary, the social structure of Hungarian Jewry in 1848, and the question of the much-debated migration from Galicia. The closing essay surveys the problems of Hungarian-Jewish history writing.
