About the Author

Suzan Zimmermann is Professor of History at the Central European University, Budapest


"Drawing on an extensive base of documents, Zimmermann reconstructs the special road of how fin-de-siecle Hungary headed for slowly becoming a welfare-state. It was in part an adaptation to the Western model transmitted by Austrian part of the dual Monarchy. The transformation also produced some distinctive innovations, examplified especially by the Budapest municipal social policy. The book will spark interest in the field of the European comparative history of social policy." GABOR GYANI, Professor at Institute of History, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest
