Culture and Customs of Hungary (Culture and Customs of Europe)

by

Culture and Customs of Hungary (Culture and Customs of Europe) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hungary today is most certainly a Central European nation in terms of a modern geopolitical and cultural understanding of Europe. Additionally, it has occupied a central position in the constellation of European kingdoms for centuries. The story of Hungary is about a country at the heart of Europe, geographically as well as culturally, and of a people quite distinct from their eastern and western neighbors yet irrevocably intertwined with them in terms of their histories and futures. Culture and Customs of Hungary is an absolute must-have for high school, public, and undergraduate library bookshelves.

Readers will explore Hungary's fascinating contemporary life and culture in this unique and all-encompassing reference work that highlights the most important Hungarian historical personalities and explains their role in the development of Hungarian culture and society, as well as their standing in modern Hungary. Topics covered include history; art, including literature, architecture, film, and music; customs and traditions; modern society and culture; media; gender roles; language; and religion.

Book News Annotation:

Buranbaeva and Mladineo have each produced previous volumes in the series, and now collaborate to examine an eastern European country that has maintained a separate identity through centuries of conquest, assimilation, and shifting political borders and alliances. The chronology traces the territory back to the first known human habitation 350,000 years BCE, rather than the Hungarian people before they arrived there about 900 AD. Among the aspects they discuss are language, gender, media, cinema, and architecture. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
