"The book makes a solid contribution both to the fields of Hungarian politics and national populism. Focusing on just three topics, it offers an in-depth account of the transformation of Hungarian politics during the last decade, combining research on constitutional law with political science. We need more works like this to help us understand the current transformation in postcommunist countries, as well as the effect of the transformation on the shift of views regarding liberal democracy. Applying political science approaches to the study of constitutional law offers new material to understand how populist leaders manipulate institutions and how this can affect both national minorities and the quality of democracy."
