Letter to the Editor: April 2013

To the Editor [Re: “They Eat Horses, Don’t They”, by Martin Ehl, TVR March, 2013] I don’t think British concern [about horsemeat] is just about cultural differences. A big issue is where the horsemeat actually came from. It is suspected that it was illegally smuggled into the food supply by the Romanian mafia, which means […]

Book Review: Night Falls on the City

Book Review: Night Falls on the City

The annals of publishing history are rife with writers lost in the grinding wheels of intellectual fashion. So it is especially gratifying when a deserving novel, like Sarah Gainham’s Night Falls on the City, is retrieved from obscurity.

Many people in Austria cannot make such choices, they are, in fact, not allowed to choose – no citizenship, no right […]

Regional Elections

Regional Elections

Stronach’s Gloss and Glory, 5 March by Michael Völker All together 130,000 people in Lower Austria and Carinthia voted this Sunday [3 March] for Team Stronach. That is indeed a strong showing. Even prior to the elections, this ‘test-tube’ party was, in fact, able to form a parliamentary group, and yet has achieved even more […]

Central Europe’s Nationalist Paradox

Central Europe’s Nationalist Paradox

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, a nationalist? On the contrary. Would he then sign partnership agreements with large foreign investors?
