"This book offers a new, complementary perspective to the study of inter-state relations in the Eastern bloc. By showing that there were chances to pursue national interest even against the common objectives of the community, Miklóssy indicates that the bloc system was not that close-knit as it has been generally assumed."
- Professor Seppo Hentilä, Vice Dean

"Gradually we are able to make better sense of what was acutally happening in the communist world thanks to the different time perspecitve that we now have. In this cogent and thorough analysis, Katalin Miklóssy reassesses Hungarian-Rimanian relations in the 1960s and 1970s by relying on previously unavailable archival material and by employing new, more cogent methodologies. The outcome is a significant contribution to our understanding of how communist systems were permated by national, sometimes nationalist, discourses, and how communist lkanguage acquired new, notionally non-comunist resonacnes, to function as an instrument of mobilisation."
- Professor George Schöpflin, Director of the Centre for the Study of Nationalism at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London
