Coperta a 4-a (The 4-th cover of book):

„Interviul, gen publicistic complex, este cea mai importantă tehnică prin care se culeg informaţii (poate cel mai important document jurnalistic), jurnalismul cultural reprezentând, astfel, un factor pozitiv şi necesar prin provocarea memoriei culturale. Interviul (cultural) de evocare a unor întâmplări cu valoare de eveniment şi cu personalităţi importante în epoca respectivă face apel la resorturile identitare ale unei naţiuni, la apartenenţa la o cultură, la asumarea unui destin istoric comun.

Studiul interviului se încadrează într-un curent frecventat de mai multe discipline socio-umane care folosesc tehnica intervievării: sociologia, jurnalistica (jurnalismul de investigaţie), dreptul, antropologia, etnografia, ştiinţele politice, etc.

Astfel, pentru istoria culturală contemporană, aportul interviurilor cu personalităţi la reconstrucţia unei epoci are un rol vital având, în acest context, o importantă dimensiune civică şi oferind date complementare sub aspectul informaţional şi socio-istoric. Interviurile cu personalităţi presupun conexiuni complexe cu aspecte referitoare la memorie (individuală sau colectivă), studii de gen, analize de discurs identitar-cultural, autobiografie, ego-histoire sau microistorie.

Lucrarea de faţă reuneşte, în primele sale 3 secţiuni, o selecţie de interviuri cu personalităţi culturale româneşti din cele 60 publicate până în prezent în cele 3 cărţi de interviuri ale mele în format print (hardcover).
Cea de-a 4-a secţiune a prezentei cărţi conţine interviuri inedite, realizate între anii 2000-2013, cu personalităţi româneşti atât din sfera culturală cât şi din alte domenii importante ale societăţii (medicină, învăţământ, religie, politică, armată şi securitate naţională).
Aidoma celorlalte 3 cărţi de interviuri, şi în această carte am analizat teme alese de mine, care sunt fundamentale, atemporale, diverse, dar distincte şi complexe, şi care, în general, tratează ideea naţiunii române, destinul poporului român pe plan cultural, social, istoric şi politic. Şi am încercat, prin tehnicile de redactare jurnalistică cele mai percutante (interviu-anchetă), să realizez un tablou cât mai variat al problemelor, tensiunilor şi conflictelor, pe plan social, politic şi cultural, care s-au abătut asupra teritoriului românesc de la instaurarea comunismului şi până în prezent.
Cititorul va avea astfel, în timp, mărturia acestor documente scrise şi, de ce nu, pulsul,„temperatura” vremurilor prezente. Sper să fie poate prima discuţie atât de complexă şi de nuanţată pe plan jurnalistic în societatea românească de după1989.
Menţionez că aceste personalităţi româneşti (din diverse domenii de activitate) – o mare parte a elitei româneşti – sunt, graţie carierelor impresionante şi caracterelor de care dispun, adevărate modele pentru tinerii României contemporane, reprezentând în mod strălucit România şi iubind sincer ţara noastră.“

1996: The Award of the Romanian Writers Union (Dobrogea Branch)

 The words of the young poetess are so strong and flexible that they give us the feeling that only a mere touch or only a movement of the air can made them to bound up to the ceiling, restrictions and obstacles being only so many occasions of launching for the great enthusiasm of each poetry atom. I friendly salute the appearance of this charming new name that has undoubtedly become purely a name.” (Ana Blandiana)




THREE RESEARCH BOOKS IN JOURNALISM AREA



I published eight books between 1996-2012, five of which are in Journalism area. 


Three of these books published in 1998, 2000 and 2002 consist of interviews with 60 important figures of the contemporary Romanian elite (intelligentia: actors, directors, writers, political analysts and theorists, musicians, choreographers, journalists) living in Romania and in the West (Germany, France, USA). 

These books were her own personal projects and they were born out of her desire to study the Eastern-European culture, politics and society (before and after 1989) with all its cultural, social, political and human dimensions. 


Through her interviews, she analyzed three different periods of time of the Romanian History: the first post-communist decade (1990-2000), the Communist phenomenon (1944-1989) and the constitutional monarchy (1866-1947).

The book containing interviews with 22 personalities of contemporary Romania analyses various aspects of Romanian political, socio-economic, and cultural life and the ways in which they were affected by the Communist ideology and transition to democracy after 1989.







1998: Rhea Cristina -- Europeni la noi acasa, interviuri 
(Europeans at our home, interviews of contemporary figures in the Romanian culture), ARS LONGA Publishing House, Iasi, 1998.


The book containing interviews with 25 cultural personalities of contemporary Romania analyses the destiny of the Romanian nation after the fall of Communism in East of Europe (between 1990-1997).

She intended these research books to be a rigorous analyse and have an informative and educative content.

The most of Romanian intellectuals living in the country and abroad, who read her books appreciated them as very useful for historians or researchers interested in studying Romania of 20th century, that included chronologically: 
the achievement of the national ideal, 
the great searches and challenges of the interwar period,
the tragic Communist experience 
and the transition to an European normal modernity.


Culture people of Romania and abroad recommended her to include them in a research program of an institution specialized in History or Journalism.
