The Second Term of Viktor Orbán
08/06/2015
Books
A collection of essays edited by John O'Sullivan and Kálmán Pócza.

This book is an attempt to deliver a first draft of history on Orbán and Orbánism. The great majority of its essays are concerned with the realities of Hungarian politics in the 26 years since 1989.

These include the rise of Viktor Orbán, the political experiences that shaped him and the Fidesz movement of which he was the dominant founder, its shift from a left-liberal to a national-conservative ideology, above all the record of Orbán’s second term in government from  2010 to 2014, and, finally, some predictions about the course of his third term of office.

All the topics covered are highly controversial in Hungarian public life, not always on a conventional left-right axis.

Our purpose is to produce a modestly comprehensive analysis of the man and his ideas in terms both of topics and standpoints.

We have therefore engaged a fair number of contributors, some who admire Orbán and some who oppose him, some who deal with domestic Orbánism and some with its foreign policy implications, some who believe him to be a conservative of some kind and some who take his assertion of ”plebeian” values to be a better guide to his policies.
