The Phoenix Land

(2003)
A non fiction book by

 
Following the success of Miklos Banffy's highly-praised Transylvanian Trilogy, winner of the Weidenfeld Translation Prize 2002, Arcadia are delighted to announce the publication of Miklos Banffy's memoirs. The 100 year-old kingdom of Hungary, which formed the major part of the Austro-Hungarian empire until the last Habsburg fled in 1918, was finally dismembered by the Western Allies by the terms of the peace treaties which followed the First World War. Phoenix-like the Hungarian people survived the horrors of the war, the disappointment of the first socialist republic, the disillusion of the brief but terrifying communist rule of Bela Kun, and the bitterness of seeing their beloved country dismembered by the Treaty of Trianon. This is the world that Miklos Banffy describes in the Phoenix Land.
