Unfinished Socialism
Pictures from the Kádár Era

András Gerô, Central European University, Budapest

Iván Petô is a historian and a Member of the Hungarian Parliament (Alliance of Free Democrats)

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

Unfinished Socialism is a visual anthropological study containing over 450 photographs, many previously unpublished, which portray life in Hungary from every angle: from the May Day March to pop music and from the homeless to sport.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 Kádár years truly transports the reader back to a time of great significance in Hungary's long and turbulent history.
