Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The history of Romania is the history of the Romanian people. Nicolae Klepper, a native Romanian, gives us all of Romania-from the days of the Roman Empire to the fall of communism, and beyond.As a country, Romania has only existed since 1859, but the history of its people stretches back to the late Bronze Age and the early Iron Age, to the Geto-Dacians and the Romans. This concise yet thorough narrative tells the fascinating story of the evolution of the Romanians, the creation of the Romanian Principalities, their struggle against empire-building powers, and their eventual unification to form the state of Romania. Many chapters begin with a section entitled Perspective, which provides context for Romanian history by describing events occurring simultaneously in other parts of Europe. The book's engaging, accessible format features over eighty illustrations, maps, and charts.

Book News Annotation:

This is a well-written and learned book that guides the popular reader through Romania's long and eventful history. All eras are covered: the stone, bronze, and iron ages; the classical period of the Dacians before, during, and after Roman rule; the long period of invasions during the Middle Ages; the principalities from the 14th century until 1821; and the periods of unification, communism, and post-communism. Romania's cultural history is included too, with accounts of writers, artists, and musicians. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
