Bucharest diary : Romania's journey from darkness to light : an American ambassador's memoir by Alfred H Moses( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An insider's account of Romania's emergence from communism control In the 1970s American attorney Alfred H. Moses was approached on the streets of Bucharest by young Jews seeking help to emigrate to Israel. This became the author's mission until the communist regime fell in 1989. Before that Moses had met periodically with Romania's communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu, to persuade him to allow increased Jewish emigration. This experience deepened Moses's interest in Romania--an interest that culminated in his serving as U.S. ambassador to the country from 1994 to 1997 during the Clinton administration. The ambassador's time of service in Romania came just a few years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent collapse of communism in Eastern Europe. During this period Romania faced economic paralysis and was still buried in the rubble of communism. Over the next three years Moses helped nurture Romania's nascent democratic institutions, promoted privatization of Romania's economy, and shepherded Romania on the path toward full integration with Western institutions. Through frequent press conferences, speeches, and writings in the Romanian and Western press and in his meetings with Romanian officials at the highest level, he stated in plain language the steps Romania needed to take before it could be accepted in the West as a free and democratic country. Bucharest Diary: An American Ambassador's Journey is filled with firsthand stories, including colorful anecdotes, of the diplomacy, both public and private, that helped Romania recover from four decades of communist rule and, eventually, become a member of both NATO and the European Union. Romania still struggles today with the consequences of its history, but it has reached many of its post-communist goals, which Ambassador Moses championed at a crucial time. This book will be of special interest to readers of history and public affairs--in particular those interested in Jewish life under communist rule in Eastern Europe and how the United States and its Western partners helped rebuild an important country devastated by communism

"Michael Simon Levy came to this country in 1862. He built an enormously successful hat business, carried on after his death by his sons William and Julius. His grandsons, my father Leslie and his brother Herbert and their cousin, Lester, carried on for another generation. The hat business was swept away by the river of time. In 1959, the Levy family sold its interest in the business. The sixth generation of Michael Simon's descendants is about to bust forth. Has anything survived? The answer: Character and ideas."--Introduction, p. 3

Romania's Nato Bid( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper first highlights the clear indications that democracy has finally taken hold in Romania and the factors that speak out against the resurgence of undemocratic forces from the left or the right. It then addresses the good relations that Romania enjoys with all of its neighbours. Next, it deals with its economic evolution: it underlines the impoverishment of the country during the Ceaucescu era and the go-slow policy that shackled economic reforms until 1996. It then presents the macroeconomic reform program designed by the IMF for the new government and it argues that the task of privatizing the vast majority of state-owned companies is the vital part of the reform agenda. Finally, the analysis examines the reorganisation process of the military and it shows that until Romania's economy pick up speed, its military will lack the resources necessary to modernise rapidly
