Summary/Abstract: REVIEW: The publishing house Polirom has focused two of its editorial programs on the recent history of Romania and, consequently, Ruxandra Cesereanu’s fits well into this editorial policy. Moreover, Cesereanu’s work is, in a certain sense, a reflection of everything that has been written about communism in Romania so far. The coordinator of the work confesses: “this volume presents and scans the nucleuses specific for the Communism manifestation and repression in Romania.” The themes tackled on this work envisage: the context of the development of communism in the 1940s, the collectivization, the penitentiary system, the security, the deportation, the torture and the persecution of the regime’s opponents and dissidents, the censorship, the social anticommunist movements from 1977 and 1987, the church during the communism, the personality cult.
