Summary/Abstract: REVIEW: Romania’s relations with Germany in the years preceding the Second World War are an important aspect of the Romanian history. Nevertheless, there has been little research on the Romanian policy towards Germany before the conflagration and the way the Romanian-German alliance was established. Rebecca Haynes offers a new perspective on the study of the Romanian-German relations in this period. The paper is the result of a laborious research based on the study of several archives documents and direct confessions. The author does not support the assertions of some historians according to which Romania was a victim of the Western Powers that sacrificed it in order to satisfy the German interests. In fact, the approaching to Germany was due to King Carol who was trying to get the German support against the revisionist powers.

About the Idea of “Transylvanianism”

Summary/Abstract: After the Paris Peace Conference sanctioned the new political and state realities in Central Europe, Hungary embarked upon a perilous program aimed to “revise” the provisions laid down by the Trianon Peace Treaty (4 June 1920) and to restore the medieval borders of the “St. Stephen’s Crown”. Revisionism came out not only as a foreign policy objective but also as a keynote of the social-political system in inter-war Hungary, active in all state activities, embraced by the quasi-totality of the Hungarian society and which gained precedence over any other commandments or principles, be them moral or whatever. Revisionism grew into a real national obsession which disregarded any critical approach.
