The Roundtable Talks of 1989: The Genesis of Hungarian Democracy

Hardback
This is the first book in English which provides comprehensive analysis and documentary history on the Roundtable Talks, the major event of the negotiated revolution of Hungary. These negotiations occurred during the summer months of 1989 between the representatives of the Communist Party, the Opposition Roundtable, and the so-called Third Side (which brought some pro-Communist satellite organizations together). The authors believe that the Roundtable Talks constituted the hub of the revolutionary transformation.
