Keith Hitchins. A Concise History of Romania. Cambridge Concise Histories Series. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, Chris Davis. That it was Keith Hitchins who wrote the book is no surprise. No one, in Romania or abroad, is as respected an authority on Romanian topics as the professor of history at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Perceptively, Hitchins charts the course of Romanian history as a continuous interaction between the West Catholicism, Protestantism, Enlightenment, nationalism, and so on and the East Orthodoxy, traditionalism, rurality, and so on.
This is not a book for specialists. The aim is to introduce the reader mostly undergraduates in Western universities and the general public to the standard historical narrative on Romania, one that highlights its rich cultural and historical repertoire.
In this respect, this is a useful book. Hitchins does an impressive job of assembling and digesting the vast scholarship on individual regions, historical periods, and cultural themes that constitute the history of the Romanians.
