“The Impact of 1956 on
the Hungarians of Transylvania”, provides a 50-year retrospective analysis of
the political consequences of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 on the
Hungarians in neighboring Romania. It focuses on the inter-ethnic knock-on
effects in the Romanian Workers Party, the “Hungarian/Mures-Hungarian
Autonomous Region”of Transylvania, and the cultural institutions of the
Hungarian minority. It links these developments to present-day
Romanian-Hungarian relations, both on the interstate and the intrastate levels.
