Interesting publications from the HDRI’s digital library from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.


During 2015 the HDRI finalized a huge work: namely the digitalization of HDRI’s Library containing very special and outstanding pieces from the literature of Hungarian demography. Although most of the books and articles are in Hungarian, some of the articles was published in English and might be interesting for the wider public. These articles are very special in the sense that – apart from these pieces – you can hardly ever find articles on the demography of the socialist countries, written in the socialist era and published in English.
