2011

This publication is not just the Hungarian version of the atlas published in English in 2009; rather it is an enlarged, updated, revised and multifunctional edition with the same page size (21 x 29.8 cm). With the addition of new chapters (parliamentary elections, talent geography), the number of pages increased to 248, the number of maps to 165, and the number of authors to 38. This handy and comprehensive atlas aimed to give an overview of Hungary in the early years of the third millennium for the average educated person, for people involved in secondary and higher education, and for decision makers at government level. After the publication of the atlas in conventional printed form, the full content of the atlas was placed on the homepage of the Geographical Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in this way offering fast (and free) information.
