Romania since the Second World War is the first book about Romania designed to chart the progress of the nation under the communist regime as well as the transition period that followed, providing detailed analysis of the aspects of continuity and change that can be identified over the period as a whole. The book begins with Romania's involvement in the Second World War, looking at the communist regime in depth. It examines how communism took hold and the elimination of traditional elites took place, before discussing the impact of Gheorghiu-Dej and Nicolae Caeusescu, the two most important leaders of the communist era. The following chapters cover the main social and economic changes during the communist regime. The second part of the book explores the transition period following the end of communism in 1989, with special attention given to international relations and Romania's drive for inclusion in NATO and the EU. Romania since the Second World War assesses socio-demographic trends across the postwar period before concluding with some thoughts on the nation's development during this time. The book includes a useful appendix covering the key figures in Romania's recent history and a helpful bibliography, making this a key text for anyone interested in the modern history of Eastern Europe.

Review:

Florin Abraham's book is the latest contribution to a scholarly tradition represented by such esteemed authors as Ghita Ionescu, Stephen Fischer-Galati, Vlad Georgescu and Vladimir Tismaneanu. Written in an accessible style, attentive to historical sources, and covering more than half a century of Romanian political history, the book provides readers with a valuable and insightful foray into a very complex period in modern European and global history. It has immediate relevance for all of us interested in twentieth century political history, and beyond. --Marius Turda, Oxford Brookes University, UK

Abrahams book triggers the readers comprehension of the difficulties Romania had to overcome during transformation. Even experts will benefit from this book. Abraham takes a broad look at Romania today and quite pointedly takes a stand, touching on numerous subjects: political institutions, parties, the educational system, churches, economic interrelations, foreign policy and demographic development. The story of the recurrent violent social protest after 1989 is especially interesting. Abraham describes the widespread insecurity in the country, the split in Romanian society and the tendency to authoritarian solutions. A committed plea to face the complexity of the present! --Armin Heinen, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
