Item description for Unfinished Socialism: Pictures from the Kadar Era by Andras Gero & Ivan Peto...

This extraordinary book provides a snapshot of socialism throughout the Kdr regime in Hungary (1956-1989) and captures the essence of the world behind the 'iron curtain' in a stunning, and often stark, collection of photographs.

Unfinished Socialism is a visually stunning anthropological study containing 450 photographs, many previously unpublished, which portray life in Hungary from every angle: from the May Day March to pop music and from the homeless to sport.

With an introduction that will help the reader understand and appreciate the true meaning of the photographs, this political, social and cultural study of the Kdr years transports the reader back to a time of great significance in Hungary's long and turbulent history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Unfinished Socialism: Pictures from the Kadar Era?

A picture is worth a thousand words  Apr 16, 2000
This is az amazing book about an interesting period of Hungarian history. In my view, if you'd like to know an era, the best thing to do is to check out its newspapers and magazines, and this is exactly what this book provides you with. Tons of funny/ridiculous/incredible (depending on your political attitude) pictures and clips of articles. Being Hungarian, I might have a different view on these things than non-Hungarians, but I'm too young to remember most of this era. If you'd like to know how people could actually _live_ in an oppressive socialist state without any personal freedom, this book is the one to read. It tells you a lot in an amusing way about this sad & sweet period of Hungarian history.
