A land of mountains, hills, and fertile plains, Romania is a tourist destination waiting to be discovered. It is a rich and complex country: a place whose cities are home to beautiful parks and vibrant cultural scenes; whose people welcome guests warmly into their homes, sharing the best of whatever they have, and party into the night, suffused by Latin joie de vivre. Buffeted over time between three great powers—the West, Russia, and Turkey—Romania betrays the cultural influences of each, and it can be a difficult place to get a handle on. Culture Smart! Romania provides an indispensable tool for the foreign visitor, digging deep behind the clichés, explaining many of the behavioral quirks of the people, smoothing your path toward better understanding, and outlining the many attractions—cultural, social, and geographical—that await you in this underexplored part of Europe.

For many people Brazil conjures up images of football, Carnaval and fine coffee, but it is much more than beaches and bossa nova. If you could choose only one word to describe Brazil, it would be diversity. The variety of racial types, lifestyles, wealth, landscape and climate is enormous. Jeitinho is the Brazilian means of dealing creatively with life's everyday complications. Literally translated as a "little way", in practice it means that regardless of the rules or systems in place, where there is a will there has to be a way around them. The jeitinho is so ingrained in daily life that you can see examples everywhere; managing to get a seat when all the places are booked up, traveling with more luggage than is allowed or successfully ordering something that is not on the restaurant menu. Culture Smart! Brazil is a concise guide to understanding the Brazilian people and illuminating the complexities of their national identity. Familiarise yourself with their customs, traditions and culture and experience Brazil authentically.

How does it feel when Transylvania is heaven on earth, but scary as hell? When you wake from a political nightmare, with a social headache? When your country is transformed, but not really? When the front door is for VIPs and the back door is for you? When you buy the perfect home in the wrong place? When you mix Thracians, Dacians, Romans, Saxons, Turks, Hungarians, French, Russians and a Brit?Mike Ormsby is a writer, global nomad and former BBC journalist/World Service trainer, whose collection of 58 short stories - funny and bittersweet – has become a cult read among Romanians, Romaniaphiles and the uninitiated, around the world.These ironic but affectionate tales, of ordinary people in often-extraordinary circumstances, have earned glowing reviews from Romania's literary critics. Some dubbed the author 'our British Caragiale', after their beloved Victorian-era playwright and satirist.Each story offers a unique glimpse of this irresistible, dynamic and enthralling country, where the locals say: "Ca la noi, la nimeni: there's nobody quite like us.” That's neither a boast nor a confession, just a fact, and Ormsby's colourful characters will entertain, educate and enrage. It usually depends on who is reading...

Romania occupies a unique position on the map of Eastern Europe. It is a country that presents many paradoxes. In this book the preeminent Romanian historian Lucian Boia examines his native land's development from the Middle Ages to modern times, delineating its culture, history, language, politics and ethnic identity. Boia introduces us to the heroes and myths of Romanian history, and provides an enlightening account of the history of Romanian Communism. He shows how modernization and the influence of the West have divided the nation - town versus country, nationalists versus pro-European factions, the elite versus the masses - and argues that Romania today is in chronic difficulty as it tries to fix its identity and envision a future for itself. The book concludes with a tour of Bucharest, whose houses, streets and public monuments embody Romania's traditional values and contemporary contradictions.
