This chapter moves into the Hungarian countryside and looks at agriculture, the engine of the economy, albeit one that sometimes raced and sometimes sputtered and stalled. It focuses on Vilmos Daróczi, a Jew who grew up in a small village and eventually made his way to Budapest. Daróczi worked as a tobacco grower, tobacco buyer, and for the last quarter-century of his life, editor of a newspaper devoted to tobacco cultivation. The northeastern counties figured prominently in Dároczi's thinking, as he dreamed of remaking the rural society from which he had emerged. Daróczi's work can help us think about Hungary's place in the global economy, about economic forces remaking the countryside, and about the connections between patriotism and consumption.
