SOCIALIST HUNGARY

The Hungarian Soviet Republic of 1919:

The Hungarian Communist Revolution of 1919

The People’s Republic of Hungary:

1949 Constitution of the Hungarian Peoples Republic [Pdf] [Audiobook]

The Upright Hungarian Communist Matyas Rakosi

This book is generally good, although it expounds some khrushchevite revisionist views about Stalin and Rakosi:
History of the Revolutionary Workers Movement in Hungary: 1944-1962

Peoples’ Democracies by Wilfred G. Burchett (1951) [recommended]

Art in Socialist Hungary

Documents on the hostile activity of the United States Government against the Hungarian People’s Republic (1951)

Studies on the History of the Hungarian Working-Class Movement (1867-1966) by Henrik Vass [This book is quite decent, but it also has problems: it slanders Rakosi and Stalin especially in chapters “Changes in the Social Structure of Hungary and the Main Questions Concerning the Alliance Policy”, “The Socialist Reorganization of Agriculture in Hungary” and “The Main Features of the Development of Social Relations in Hungary”, particularly regarding Collectivization, the Independence Front and Industrialization. The latter two chapters also try to justify Kadarist revisionism. Besides those chapters, the book is quite good, but it ignores the achievements of Rakosi and Stalin thus leaving many things not correctly explained. The book also does not mention the treacherous crimes of Arpad Szakasits, Laszlo Rajk, Ferenc Donath, Guyla Kallai and Janos Kadar and gives the false impression that they were good comrades.]

The Counter-Revolution of 1956:

This book is generally good, although it expounds some khrushchevite revisionist views about Stalin and Rakosi:
The Truth About Hungary by Herbert Aptheker

This book is generally good, although it expounds some khrushchevite revisionist views about Stalin and Rakosi:
Counter-revolutionary forces in the October events in Hungary I

Counter-revolutionary forces in the October events in Hungary II
