National Development in Romania and Southeastern Europe

Details

This book honors Cornelia Bodea, academician, scholar, professor, teacher, and, above all, friend and colleague to three generations of American and British students of the Romanian past and culture.

The studies in this volume, apart from two contributions dedicated to the work of Cornelia Bodea, are arranged in chronological order. They range from an effort to elucidate the image of Napoleon, as seen by Polish participants in Napoleon’s failed Russia invasion, a study on the development of the Albanian national consciousness, in which Romania also played a role, an illuminating study of the image of Romania found in the classic eleventh edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, World War I, British cultural policy in Romania, post-World War II Romanian-American relations, and a study of the Transnistrian dispute.

The scope of these studies reflects the range of Cornelia Bodea’s own work, which has dealt with grand themes of Romanian national development, cultural history, and Romanian diplomatic history. She combined painstaking discovery and elaboration of apparently small, but significant details along with the publication of important documentary and other resource materials.

Academician Cornelia Bodea passed away in 2010. Contributors to this volume include Dennis Deletant, Radu R. Florescu, Richard Frucht, Joseph Harrington, Ernest H. Latham, Jr., Paul E. Michelson, and Kurt W. Treptow.
