The book argues that Romanian national communism had an ally in a strong Church. An important contribution to the discussion on religion during the Cold War and the inner dynamics of communist states. Leustean argues convincingly that the period under discussion provides one of the most controversial examples of the dynamics between religion and politics in communist East-Central Europe. In addressing issues of significance to historians, social scientists, and theologians, the book will provide a valuable case-study for students of the region. -Dennis Deletant, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London, UK.

Orthodoxy and the Cold War. LUCIAN N. LEUSTEAN is a Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at Aston University, Birmingham, UK. He holds degrees in international relations, law and theology and completed his doctorate in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Hardback 11 Dec 230218017. This book examines the unique dynamics between Orthodoxy and politics in Romania. In the 1950s Romania began to distance itself from Moscow's influence, developing its own form of communism.

The book argues that Romanian national communism had an ally in a strong Church, and analyzes religious diplomacy with actors in the West. So I have no idea if Lucian Leustean is whitewashing the history or he is plain ignorant. Page 25 quotes plainly the demographics registered in 1859 by the rabidly nationalistic authorities. There were none based on this text. In 1935 he was suddenly elected Metropolitan of Moldavia, a position from which he held the locum tenens in case of the patriarch’s death.
