 Brief History of Hungary
To encapsulate the history of eleven-hundred years in some 100 Kbytes of text the author had to be selective - much detail of interest had to be ommitted in order to present the broad outline.
Selection, as well as the linking and glossing of the selected facts, inevitably shows up as an editorial view, which might have been subtly different had this text been prepared by someone else -- but few would question, it is to be hoped, the overall factual accuracy of the narrative.
A comment on presentation: reading about history in reverse sequence might be more satisfactory than the orthodox approach beloved of schoolmasters, namely starting with the distant past and moving forward through time, which risks boring the reader with details whose subsequent import and consequences only become clear later on.
