Summary "Traces the social history of Hungarians and Jews. The author shows how in less than a hundred years, state policies shifted from demanding and welcoming assimilation, to institutionalised antisemitism. The case of Hungary provides poignant illustration to the failure of inclusion through assimilation and to the role of the political ethos, the state and of legal institutions in the process of institutionalising exclusion."
