The Moldavian Hieroglyph

Pages: 646

On full grounds, the book can be attributed to the genre of “the novel out of articles” because the author’s meditations, like a cohesive thread, narrate about the intricate history of his motherland Moldova, its people and their mentality, its history and culture, its science and education, about its place in a most complex interweaving of Western and Eastern cultures and civilizations.
The book consists of several sections including journalistic, cultural and scientific research. The same topic is considered at different angles and in different variations – the topic of human destiny and human creativity in this world that is intricate, constantly shaken by economic, political, ethnic and spiritual crises.
The book reflects the extensive material rich in facts, events and thoughts. This material is based on the author’s personal experience as a scientist, diplomat and publicist. The book attempts to "decipher" the cultural codes of the multinational population in Moldova.
Hence it got its name - “The Moldavian Hieroglyph”.

“It's a very strange book – smart, delicate and elegant. The essay-book. It should not be read avidly, but be read now and then and should be returned to again and again giving the attention to its new places. The author was born in the country, which lies at the crossroads of cultures – a country where culture, mingling, gave birth to new cultural forms. The author grew up as a leader, connecting the most remote cultures – the Chinese culture and those of the Dniester and the Danube because he was the ambassador of Moldova in China. Similarly, he links humanitarian and mathematics cultures, politics and philosophy in a single information space. And the he links them gracefully, not intrusively”. Leo Klein
