This review essay discusses four recent urban historical publications that all relate to Hungarian history and scholarship. The first two works are studies of Budapest by individual authors, namely Gábor Gyáni and Robert Nemes, and are now available in English. The second two are Hungarian-language volumes of conference proceedings that consciously aim to cross disciplinary and national borders, specifically the Slovak-Hungarian one. Taking different paths, all four of these monographs aim to elevate Hungarian urban history beyond local confines. This review essay argues that these works deserve our attention as they reflect new developments, but two of them expose scholarly limitations. The reviewer lays out five criteria in his introduction by which he evaluates the works in his conclusion. Together these publications enable us to draw a rough map of current scholarly production and thereby provide a sense of orientation in the changing landscape of Hungarian urban historiography. They additionally allow us to compare Hungarian scholarship with those of other national contexts.
