MEDIA REVIEWS

"From Communism to Capitalism: Nation and State in Romanian Cultural Production develops an imaginative and innovative examination of identity formation and change in communist and post-communist Romania by tracking the presentation and evolution of three central aspects of identity in Romanian film those of the worker, of women in society, and the concept of the nation. The author draws upon post-modernist theoretical interpretations of self and other to provide the reader with a clear picture of the ways in which political and economic transition have overlapped with cultural and psychological change. The resulting narrative provides an important almost essential - complement to the narrowly political and economic analyses that dominate the field of post-communist transition studies." - Roger E. Kanet, Professor, University of Miami, and editor of Russian Foreign Policy in the Twenty-First Century

"Combining theoretical depth, with lucid application, Andreescu's inquiry into the transition to Romania's post communist, state-implicated fantasy structures is a wide ranging scholarly contribution that transcends considerably the usual individual nation-focused investigation. Articulating psychoanalysis, cultural analysis, international political economy, state theory and feminist theory, with conceptually astute film readings, From Communism to Capitalism is a brilliant application of aesthetic methodology and a compelling, interdisciplinary contribution to many areas of political inquiry." - Michael J. Shapiro, Department of Political Science, University of Hawai'i, Manoa
