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.

About the Author:

Alex Drace-Francis is a Research Fellow in the Department of History at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London.

Review:

""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
