CHARACTERS À Failed Illusions: Moscow, Washington, Budapest, and the 1956 Hungarian Revolt Winner of the 2007 Marshall Shulman PrizeThe 1956 Hungarian revolution and its suppression by the USSR was a key event in the cold war demonstrating deep dissatisfaction with both the communist system and old fashioned Soviet imperialism But now fifty years later the simplicity of this David and Goliath story should be revisited according to Charles Gati's new history of the revoltDenying neither Hungarian heroism nor Soviet brutality Fa. A well written well organized overview type history of events in 1956 Hungary from all sides The author argues that all parties in the affair could have resolved their differences peacefully Instead as Gati tells it they all vacillated between idealism and intransigence and Gati concludes that for Hungary the whole affair was a missed opportunity Gati also concludes that Cold War politics and geopolitics did not necessarily pre determine the outcomeGati judges Nagy an ineffective political leader the insurgents as haughty and ill tempered the US as hypocritical regarding its stance on rolling back the communists which Gaty argues was a political move by Eisenhower to appease the right wing of his party and the Soviets as arrogant unimaginative and brutal although Gati does describe Moscow s willingness to seek a political rather than military solution arguing that the Soviets took the latter course due to Hungarian radicalism Nagy s political ineptitude and America s irresponsible and hypocritical foreign policy as well as its lack of intelligence assets in country Gati also describes Eisenhower s 1955 effort to negotiate for a neutral Hungary an overture the Russians rejected as well as the revolutionaries aim of reforming rather than abolishing the communist governmentAn insightful well researched and readable history although his analysis of the revolutionaries motives seems inadeuate and is mostly focused on the communist intellectual types There is also little on the UN response
