National Ideology Under Socialism: Identity and Cultural Politics in Ceausescu's Romania

Katherine Verdery


The current transformation of many Eastern European societies is impossible to understand without comprehending the intellectual struggles surrounding nationalism in the region. This book shows how the example of Romania suggests that current ethnic tensions come not from a resurrection of pre-Communist Nationalism but from the strengthening of national ideologies under Communist Party rule.

Keywords: Eastern Europe, nationalism, Romania, ethnic tensions, pre-Communist Nationalism, Communist Party, national ideologies
