[Magyar Történelmi Emlékek - Értekezések. 11.]) by Stefano Bottoni, senior research fellow of our institute and an expert of political and social history of Hungary and Romania during the Communist period. The book is a critical synthesis of the rich and contradictory history of the Eastern half of the continent since the Soviet military occupation up to present days. The six chapters combine a thematic and chronologic approach, focusing on key events but also trying to describe how political and diplomatic events, from the creation of the Soviet Bloc to the recent economic crisi, have affected the lives of millions.

Fodor borito honlapraThe RCH Institute of History has published the newest volume of the serial Monumenta Hungariae Historica entitled "From Sultan Süleyman to Mór Jókai. Studies in the Ottoman structure of power and the Hungarian–Turkish connections" (Budapest, 2014. [Magyar Történelmi Emlékek- Értekezések. 10.]) by Pál Fodor, Acting Director General of the RCH (and Director of the Institute of History).
The volume contains the turcologist Fodor’s scholarly essays written in the 2000s. The essays are arranged in thematic chapters, and this way they provide a wide insight into the operational techniques, cohesive forces, drives to wars of the power structure and state mechanism of the Ottoman Empire, which – in spite of its seemingly slow adaptability – had remarkable renewal capacity and had a great effect on Hungarian life.
