Abstract

Unlike the other East-Central European countries, where the transition from communist rule to democracy was the result of peaceful movements or negotiations around a round table, Romania experienced a violent change of regime. The last communist ruler, Nicolae Ceausescu, was removed from his sultanistic position by a popular uprising. The step towards a democratic regime expressed the will of huge masses of people that demonstrated in all important cities of the country and in almost all localities. The present political system in Romania may be described as a representative democracy, governed by the directly elected President and Parliament (semi-presidential system), according to the provisions of the new Constitution.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
