"There are works which need no introduction; they introduce themselves. It is the case of the present work, which through its significant documents illustrates Romania's History, in its permanence, the making and assertion of the Romanian people, its spirit of continuity, its endurance and creative power." So reads the opening of professors Stefan Stefanescu and Ioan Scurtu's introduction to this fascinating documentary history of Romania. Beginning with a stone inscription dating back to 48 B.C. and ending with the 1947 peace treaty between Romania and the Allied power, this comprehensive reference covers nearly two millenia. It is heavily illustrated, with many images in color. With text in Romanian, French, and English. 288 pp. Hardbound in white boards with decoration on the cover and an illustrated dust jacket.


Condition: B+

Text is very good. Covers have light soiling and wear. The dust jacket has a few chips and tears.
