About the Author

After taking a double first in history at Cambridge and continuing his historical studies as a Research Fellow of St Antony's College, Oxford, Bryan Cartledge joined the British Diplomatic Service in 1960, subsequently serving in Sweden, the Soviet Union and Iran. He was seconded to 10 Downing Street as Private Secretary for Overseas Affairs to James Callaghan and Margaret Thatcher and served as British Ambassador to Hungary from 1980 to 1983, and to the Soviet Union from 1985 to 1988, when he left the Diplomatic Service on his election to be Principal of Linacre College, Oxford. He was knighted in 1985.


'Though this is a political history, the social and economic aspects are well covered. Cartledge has ... a perceptive eye and an elegant pen. The Will to Survive is set to become the standard work on Hungary.' * International Affairs *
'... a very accessible and invaluable companion, both as a narrative of Hungarian history per se and as a constant source of information to complete the various bits of knowledge gathered during expeditions to museums, libraries and monuments.' * The Budapest Times *
'The most detailed and balanced narrative of Hungarian history currently available in English.' * Franz A.J. Szabo, Canadian Journal of History *
'This is the best history of Hungary in the English language.' * John Lukacs *
