Neagu Djuvara, Cristian Anton
This is an honest, comprehensive account of the history of Romanians and as such, it is no ordinary history book. Neagu Djuvara, one of Romania’s foremost historians, has the audacity to tackle some of the most delicate and controversial issues in Romania’s past under the guise of light storytelling. With the addition of over 400 maps and illustrations, the book gives readers a chance to catch a glimpse into the world of barbarians and medieval princes depicted in wonderful illuminated manuscripts, or that of Romania’s birth as a nation. Together, the story and illustrations intertwine to form a new, enhanced historical account – and hopefully, one not lacking in originality.
