Hungarian-Russian Economic Relations, 1920–1941

Attila Seres

East European Monographs

This book is the first monograph-length study based on archival research in Hungary and Russia. It examines the history of Hungary's attempts to establish and carry on trade relations with the Soviet Union during the interwar years. For Hungary, economic relations were motivated by the need for raw materials for its industries and a market for its finished industrial products. For the Soviet Union economic ties with Hungary were based on political considerations.
A well-written account of the development of economic relations between two countries that had emerged after the First World War from empires that did not survive that conflict... Carl H. McMillan, Carleton University, The Russian Review
