Abstract

The socio-economic case of Hungarian Jewry is examined, with special temporal reference to the period of 1850-1900.Statistical and economic data of Austro-Hungary point to the key role of landownership and rent collection on Hungarian territory, being the main cause for a failed modernization and emancipation, despite all human and technical progress.
