Australian responses to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956

Hein, Rodger W (1999) Australian responses to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Honours thesis, Victoria University of Technology.


This thesis examines the varying responses by different sections of the Australian community to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. The hypothesis of this work argues is that the different responses were predictable, given the backdrop of Cold War thinking of the time, community attitudes, and the political mix in Australia in 1956. The responses accurately reflected Australian social, political and religious attitudes in the 1950s.
