A crossroads of migrations and invasions from the period of the Roman Empire to the invasion of the Red Army in the summer of 1944, the lands between the Baltic and the Black Sea hold layers of history. Romans, Barbarians, Hungarians, Mongols, Ottoman Turks, Russians and West-European peoples have left deep traces. In the course of the ages the path of the local population has repeatedly intersected the Bulgarian aspirations. The meandering fate of the three principalities - Wallachia, Moldova and Transylvania - has led to the national unification in the early 20th century, which has no roots in the distant highly mythologized past. Today Romania strives to cast off the burden of its tempestuous history and aspires for dignified future in United Europe. Traian Sandu, a university lecturer and scholar, has overcome the legends, which have struck root in Romanian historiography, to offer an integral, lively study written in a contemporary style, which covers the historical, economic and cultural development of a European state with a place and role of its own on the Old Continent.
