THE
TRIUMPH
OF
TYRANNY
The
main
purpose
of
Professor
Bor-
sody's
book
is
to
show
how
nationalist
rivalries
paved
the
way
to
modem
tyr^
n
ny
in
Central
Europe.
A
Hungarian
who
was
forced
into
exile
after
the
Communist
coup
in
1947,
he
feels
as
a
European,
and
writes
about
Central
Europe
with
the
impartiality
of
an
American,
as
he
now
is.
The
chief
cause
of
Central
Europe's
tragedy
in
the
post-Habsburg
era,
he
maintains,
was
Czech-Hungarian
hostility.
He
is
very
frank
in
hiscriticism
of
theinter-war
regime
in
Hungary
and
of
the
Czechs
under
Benes.
But
he
supports
his
controversial
theme
with
well-ordered
arguments
and
facts
which
include
a
good
deal
of
fresh
and
accurate
information.
He
discusses
the
Nazi
and
Soviet
con-
quest
of
the
disunited
smaller
nations
against
the
broader
background
of
Great
Power
politics,
and
he
outlines
a
Tedera-
listic
solution'
of
the
present
East-
West
conflict.
The
triumph
of
tyranny,
he
suggests,
should
be
a
warning
to
the
nations
of
the
free
world
that
theytoocourt
disaster
by
adhering
to
obsolete
notions
of
national
sovereignty.
The
scholarly
and
lucid
style
of
the
tragic
story
should
grip
even
the
general
reader
who
is
notnormally
attracted
by
a
work
of
this
nature.
The
experts
are
sure
to
find
in
it
much
they
will
question
but
more
of
which
they
will
approve.
