The Romanians: A History
is the first compre
hensive study of the Romanian people by asingle author to be published in English since1934. It was written without the fear of censorship and therefore earns the reader's trustwith its straightforward tone, balanced views,and systematic approach to its subject. By contrast, the several multi-authored official histories of Romania found in larger researchlibraries in the United States are rendered suspect, particularly in their treatment of moderntimes and precisely because of their "official"stamp of approval.Georgescu focuses on the Romanian people,examining not only ethnic communities frompre-Roman times to the present but also socialstructures, economics, and political institutions of the principalities inhabited by theRomanians at various stages of their historicaldevelopment.Originally published in Romanian in 1984,the text has been updated in an epiloguewritten by series editor Matei Calinescu andVladimir Tismaneanu that describes events ofthe past decade, especially the 1989 revolutionthat deposed Ceausescu, and the sweepingchanges now enveloping Eastern Europe.
Vlad Georgescu
was director of the RomanianService of Radio Free Europe in Munich untilhis death in 1988.
