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.

This problem-solving book is an introduction to the study of Diophantine equations, a class of equations in which only integer solutions are allowed. The presentation features some classical Diophantine equations, including linear, Pythagorean, and some higher degree equations, as well as exponential Diophantine equations. Many of the selected exercises and problems are original or are presented with original solutions. An Introduction to Diophantine Equations: A Problem-Based Approach is intended for undergraduates, advanced high school students and teachers, mathematical contest participants — including Olympiad and Putnam competitors — as well as readers interested in essential mathematics. The work uniquely presents unconventional and non-routine examples, ideas, and techniques.

The present period has been called the Information Age. Until now, however, historians have by and large passed over the use and generation of business information. This wide-ranging book provides a new historical perspective by drawing upon concepts and models from economics, business and economic history, management studies, and the sociology and history of science. It will make an important contribution to our understanding of the role of information in business strategies and industrial policy, and marks a step towards a more sophisticated evaluation of information management styles past and present. The authors, distinguished scholars from several European countries, the USA and Japan, explore the 'information society' through focusing on ideas about the meaning and the economic function of business information. Theories of scientific management, the effect of organizational structures and the spread of ideas are studied historically and in contemporary situations throughout the world. At a time when efficient information use is expected to give particular competitive advantage to firms, this book will be of special interest to all those responsible for the use of information in large organizations as well as to scholars, including historians, economists, sociologists and management scientists.
