How do literacy and the development of literary culture promote the development of a national identity? Here Alex Drace-Francis offers a well-researched and readable guide to the development of literary, educational, and printing institutions in the Romanian lands in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In twenty concise yet scholarly chapters, Drace-Francis both provides a state-of-the-art overview of current knowledge, and makes an original contribution to debates about print culture, modernization, national identity, and state formation.

Alex Drace-Francis is a Research Fellow in the Department of History at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London.
""An enormously erudite study... for anyone interested in the origins of modern Romanian literary production and education in the context of the Enlightenment, modernization, and state-formation this is an indispensable book."" - Irina Livezeanu, author of Culture and Politics in Greater Romania, in the Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies
""Alex Drace-Francis has produced a highly accurate and often outstandingly subtle piece of research. This British scholar observes things that his Romanian colleagues, being too familiar with them, have tended to overlook."" - Ovidiu Pecican, Observator cultural
""Solid and extremely well informed, Alex Drace-Francis's book not only brings together a great mass of information and hypotheses, but also asks important questions about a cultural legacy whose investigation is still plagued by stereotypes."" - Mircea Anghelescu, Romanian review of book history
