M. LACKÓ ARROWíCROSS MEN, NATIONAL SOCIALISTS 1935-1944 M. LACKÓ ARROW-CROSS MEN, NATIONAL SOCIALISTS (1935 — 1944) This survey of the period from 1935, when Szálasi made his appearance in political life, to the „taking over of the po­wer” in 1944, presents sketches in broad outlines about the social background of the ultra ­­reactionary movements in Hun­gary, examining their course — through a transitional stage of expending influence — to their final collapse. Light is thrown on the extent their ideas had penetrated the various social strata, as well as on the attitude shown by the ruling circles of Germany and quickly changing governments in Hungary. Inner relations and trends in Nazi or­ganizations are characterized; the political aspects of right­­wing extremists and party lead­ers depicted; the fights of „ra­dical” Nazis with „Saloon” national socialists outlined, and their connections with the Ger­man Nazi leaders analysed. The author has based his ac­count on an extensive research of sources: contemporary police reports, written documents, parts of Szálasi’s diary, publica­tions of German fascists, etc. AKADÉMIAI KIADÓ Publishing House of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Budapest studiaJ"Ji STORICA Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae
