Summary/Abstract: Mioara Anton, who has already stood out as one of the most authoritative representatives of the "new wave" of Romanian historiography, assumed the task, not easy, of providing an assessment of the Romanian-Soviet relations in the first two post-war decades through the prism of mutations produced from the model vassal stage to that of rebel ally. The work is both the result of the critic takeover and the integration of known historical sources and of the studies and works on the topic addressed directly, but also of their own and substantial research in the archives. The result was materialized in a synthesis work, by dimensions, but which excels by the number and quality of the original sources and by the originality of its structure and the accents put in the analysis. The author does not propose a work on the whole of the Romanian-Soviet relations, premature, given the current state of knowledge of sources and the stage of special research, but an incursion into the evolution of the relations between the political regimes in Romania and the Soviet Union through the prism of the perception and reaction of the communist leaders in Bucharest – first of all, Gheorghiu-Dej – towards the directives of the Kremlin. Mioara Anton thus offers both specialists and a wide circle of researchers the opportunity to know the essential segment of the Romanian-Soviet relations, as well as the necessary guide for the correct deciphering of the struggle for power control within the communist regime in Romania. Among the topics covered: Romania and the Soviet-Yugoslav schism; Khrushchev's secret report, withdrawal of Soviet troops, disputes with the Soviet Union in CAER, Khrushchev's visit to Romania in 1962, Romania's opening to the West, April 1964 declaration.
