Based at the concept that there's a massive distinction among truth and discourse, the writer issues out that heritage is continually reconstructed, tailored and infrequently mythicized from the views of the current day, current states of brain and ideologies. He heavily examines old tradition and sense of right and wrong in 19th and 20th century Romania, relatively targeting the influence of the nationwide ideology on background.

The power of background and fable in Romanian attention lies within the author's skill to totally deconstruct the complete Romanian historiographic process and display the expanding acuteness of nationwide difficulties normally, and specifically the exploitation of historical past to help nationwide ideology.
