Relapse into Bondage: Political Memoirs of a Romanian Diplomat, 1918-1947

Relapse into Bondage: Political Memoirs of a Romanian Diplomat, 1918-1947 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born in 1895 in Bucharest, Alexandar Cretzianu joined Romania's diplomatic service in 1918. He was assigned to Romanian legations in London, Rome, and Berne before he was summoned home to head the League of Nations section of the Romanian Foreign Ministry (1929-32) where he served and admired Foreign Minister Nicolae Titulescu (1883-1941), a champion of collective security. In 1933 Cretzianu became chief of the Political Division of the Foreign Ministry until 1938, and then its Security-General until 1941. On September 15, 1943, the Antonescu regime appointed him envoy to Turkey. In Ankara, Cretzianu strove to represent the antiwar attitudes of young King Mihai and opposition politicians. Cretzianu never again set foot in his native land after the armistice was signed in September 1944 because of the Communist takeover of Romania. He ultimately settled in the United States where he died in 1979.

Book News Annotation:

Born in 1895 in Bucharest, Cretzianu's diplomatic service extended from before WWI through WWII. His memoirs shed light on Romanian relations with Moscow, the decline of the Little Entente and Balkan Entente, Anglo-French politics regarding the Balkans, the Nazi-Soviet pact, the Antonescu regime, and the antiwar attitudes of King Mihai of Turkey. The present work is a prelude to his previously published work, The Lost Opportunity (London: Jonathan Cape, 1957), which treats his career from 1938 to 1944. Distributed by ISBS.
