"This powerful cocktail of articles by Ernest Latham on aspects of Romanian history & culture shows the reader that we are dealing with an original, acute & perceptive observer & analyst, & an elegant stylist. American & British writers on 1930s & 1940s Romania such as Henry Baerlein, Rosie Waldeck & Olivia Manning are the subject of one set of penetrating studies by Doctor Latham, while reports by neutral observers of American prisoners of war held in Romania between 1943 & 1944 , the role of the American Legation & American Jews in Romania in late Summer 1944, form another. The abiding sense emanating from the studies in this volume is that of gentle beguilement by Romania & the Romanians, not only of the figures in the studies themselves, but also of their author." - Dennis Deletant - visiting Ion Ratju Professor of Romanian Studies Georgetown University, Washington DC Trade Paperback.
