Attempts to Resolve Political Hysteria
This book addresses István Bibó's analyses of political hysteria and case studies of Eastern Europe, Hungary, and Germany, written in the 1940s. It focuses on two documents in which Bibó attempted crisis management, a declaration to the Hungarian people at the moment of the Soviet occupation in 1956 and a political memorandum after the suppression of the revolution addressed to the international community in 1957. It also discusses Bibó's seminal study on the Jewish question, an astonishing tour de force in social criticism, a guidebook for the intellectually honest written on the eve of Communist takeover, in the last moments of relative free speech.
