"Kellogg's finest work on Romanian history in the late
nineteenth century I have read in many a year. In fact, it may be the best work
on Romanian history in English written in the last forty years. Kellogg's study
is the most objective, most exhaustive, and most sophisticated work on the
history of Romania during the early years of Prince Carol's rule."
". . . an interesting case study of a small Balkan state
in its formative years. . . . Based on extensive research in the archives of
the major states involved, this work fills a gap in the diplomatic history of
". . . a balanced, meticulously researched political study
of how Romania achieved independence by 1880. The central thesis is that the Romanians
did not achieve independence swiftly or unilaterally from the Ottomans, but in
many stages, and always due to the actions of the Europeans great powers."
