REVIEW: Ioan Opriș, Vasile stoica. O emblemă națională în pușcărie
Abstract: The study reviews professor Ioan Opriș’s reconstruction of the diplomat and ambassador Vasile Stoica’s professional trajectory, mainly based on family archive documents, but also relying on adjacent sources. Born in Sibiu, in the Avrig township, Vasile Stoica (1889-1959) worked in diplomacy, having remarkable initiatives for Romania’s destiny before and during the two World Wars, as well as during the interwar period. He was a victim of the communist dictatorship, dying in the political prison in Jilava. Even though his social-professional, civic, political, and citizen existence is representative for the epoch and sometimes has a crucial importance in the understanding of its details, his life has been scarcely examined by historians prior to Ioan Opriș’s monograph using valid sources and scientific approaches.
Keywords: modern Romanian history, Romania in the 20th century, diplomatic history of Romania, the Great Union of 1918, communist totalitarianism in Romania, Vasile Stoica
