Abstract

The Hungarian Cultural Centre in London and the Centre for the Study of Central Europe, School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES), University College London organized a conference ‘Lajos Kossuth Sent Word to commemorate the bicentenary of his birth in March 2002 with both Hungarian and British participants. Academician Domokos Kosary gave his support to the conference from the start; he was scheduled to deliver the keynote speech but on medical advice could not travel from the heart of Europe to its edge. Thanks to the generous financial support of the Hungarian Cultural Centre and its Director-General, Mrs Katalin Bogyay, and the encouragement of Professor George Kolankiewicz, Director of SSEES, the papers read at the conference and two contributions commissioned after the conference can be published here. The volume brings together the results of recent research on Kossuth’s politics in the setting of the Habsburg Monarchy’s great nineteenth century revolutions. The contributions, by many of the leading scholars on the subject, offer a variety of (and in some respects even contradictory) perspectives and assessments of such complex subjects as the 1848 revolutions. Our aim is to take the subject further by looking at it from new perspectives that may offer fresh insights into the political personality of a remarkable politician, rather than to try to achieve some common outlook either on Kossuth or on the revolutions themselves. This accounts for the catholicity of the volume.
