Politics and Peasants in Interwar Romania

Perceptions, Mentalities, Propaganda

Editor(s): Sorin Radu, Oliver Jens Schmitt
Contributors: Corneliu Pintilescu, Cornel Micu, Toth Szilard, Svetlana Suveică, Valeria Soroştineanu, Vlad Popovici,

Book Description

The volume discusses the integration of peasants into the nation building project of Greater Romania with a focus on social and cultural practices. Thus, it addresses one of the key questions of the new political system in post-imperial East Central and Southeast Europe. It advocates a shift from a multiple top-down perspective (capital – province, urban political elites – rural voters) to an analysis concentrating on regionally diverse rural societies with a special interest in the predominantly ethnic Romanian population.
