American Historical Review

"Nagy’s book is a valuable first attempt to gauge the inspirations, resources, and processes behind the Hungarian decision—in the wake of a lost world war and a disastrous peace—to join competing Habsburg successor states and engage in 'cultural diplomacy' with ever more commitment. The book deserves ample praise for what its thematic chapters accomplish: a complex reading of new dimensions in a small nation’s external relations, constructed by an authoritarian regime mastering the challenges of modernity with some skill and considerable flexibility."
