Give Peace One More Chance!: Revision of the 1946 Peace Treaty of Paris
Anthony Tihamer Komjathy grew up in a small Hungarian town, Satoraljaujhely, which was divided into a Czechoslovakian half and a Hungarian half. The author became interested in the history of Eastern Europe at a young age and has devoted much of his life to examining the treaties and events which have defined geographic and political situations throughout the Eastern countries. Give Peace One More Chance! compares the treaties following both WWI and WWII. Komjathy discusses the failure of the treaties and explains that they disregarded the moral principle of national self-determination. He looks at the use of force intended to "preserve" peace and the demands, especially those of the Hungarians, to rectify the dishonesty and manipulation imposed upon them. Komjathy interprets the implications of revisions of the Munich Agreement, the First and Second Vienna Awards and the re-annexation of Ruthenia by Hungary and then, after WWII, the serious consequences of Stalin's (and the Allied Powers') condemnation of the treaties. Komjathy seeks to revise the 1947 Parisian treaty in order to prevent the repetition of such calamities in the Danube Valley. He not only points out existing dangers, but also suggests very useful solutions. Contents: The First Vienna Award; Reunion of Hungary and Ruthenia; The Second Vienna Award; Comparison of Tranon and Paris Treaty; Conclusions and Suggestions; Epilogue; Appendixes: Agreement Between Hungary and Croatia; The Munich Agreement; Letter of the Hungarian Ambassador; Bibliography; List of Maps.
