Summary

"Based on extensive field research and archival findings that no other Western researcher has seen, this book is the first comprehensive account of the history and contemporary politics of the Republic of Moldova. Charles King traces the major events that have shaped what is perhaps the least known of the former Soviet Union's successor states, from its rise as an autonomous principality in the fourteenth century to the traumatic territorial changes of more recent times."--BOOK JACKET.
