: „Wishful thinking” in Homan’s History textbooks of secondary grammar schools

The present study examines the conceptual features of the contemporary chapters of the Hóman history textbook series, those that refer to the so called ‘wishful thinking’ deviated from the reality of the power elite of the Horthy era. The study primarily aims to enrich the research results of textbook history writing, but at the same time it puts some historical works on the subject of analysis. These works are mainly aimed at the foreign policy public thinking of the power elite and at outlining the ideas of the great powers, especially the German Empire, about Hungary.

Keywords: history textbooks, textbook historiography, textbook series from Hóman
