Imre Nagy, Martyr of the Nation is a study of the ways in which the memory of the martyred Prime Minister and the story of the 1956 Revolution influenced political socialization in Hungary. The study begins with Nagy's 1989 funeral and the role memorialization played in the politics of transition, continuing with a review of the important personages and events that informed Nagy's life and afterlife, and concludes in the tumultuous politics following the establishment of the Republic in 1989.
Karl P. Benziger is an associate professor in the Department of History at Rhode Island College.
