Summary/Abstract: József Szent-Ivány (1884–1941) was one of the most important personalities of politics, public life and cultural learning of Hungarians in Czechoslovakia of the interwar period. After his death in 1941, however, he was forgotten by historiography, and his name also disappeared from public consciousness. As a consequence, we do not really know the due weight and significance of József Szent-Ivány´s person and example in such detail and context as he would deserve it. This book endeavours to explore József Szent-Ivány´s career according to the present state of research, and it undertakes to add many, yet unknown or little known data, facts, and new dimensions about him, and also about the epoch.
