Romania and the Quest for European Identity by Cristian Cercel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The election, in 2014, of Klaus Iohannis as Romania's president was hailed as evidence that the country had chosen a 'European' future. That Iohannis belonged to the tiny German minority was also considered to have contributed to his success. German prestige in Romania is a long standing phenomenon and its impact and interlinked issues constitute the crux of this book exploring post-1989 Romania and the construction of a European identity. Deconstructing the overwhelmingly positive representations of Romanian Germans within the country and the incongruencies implied by the construction of a 'civilised' German other and 'uncivilised' Romanian self the author explores representations of the German minority comparing this with perceptions of other national ethnic groups. Providing a fresh analysis the book offers a critical study of the cultural processes and discourses associated with post-Communist 'Europeanisation' providing a better understanding of unequal West-East relationships following the fall of the Iron Curtain and an analytical lens through which to study other majority-minority relationships.
