No. 22 | (Summer 1994)

As we have promised earlier one of the main topics of this issue of Eszmélet is social policy looking at it both from theoretical-methodological and practical point of view focusing on Hungary. A different group of articles analyse the comprehensive and principal questions of historical development beginning form early periods up to the postmodern approach to history. Several studies examine the validity and perspectives of the different models of the capitalist society developed so far. Readers certainly will find interesting the presented dilemmas and efforts of the political left concerning the horrific events in former Yugoslavia and in Russia.
