Sorin Radu, Oliver Jens Schmitt (eds.), Politics and Peasants in Interwar Romania: Perceptions, Mentalities, Propaganda, Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing 2017.

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.
