I recently read the manuscript with great interest the new book about the country Moti and I enjoyed the novelty of her, worth putting much-needed level of knowledge today of such units so special and ethnographic complex in Romania and the world.
Based on an extensive bibliography and representative, Mr. L Dr. Radu Jude proposes new readers a trip to the Land Moti, horizontally and vertically. Last coordinated a perfect mastery of geological point and beyond. So, as a specialist in geology as already known, information on the geological structure of this country is now as complete and clear to all readers well, whether endorsed or not.
Of course, a special interest in prehistoric times until today, this precious metals since gold remains an attraction for everyone. But there is another gain of informing contained in text and illustration that accompanies suggestive. This concerns, among others, how to harvest precious metal from the earliest times of human presence in the region and, of course, with the advent of its interest for gold.
Sources used are numerous and well balanced, from the archaeological and / or due to ancient writings, to the ethnographic, often very valuable, as every reader can see, they happily fill information from ancient times until today.
Beyond the evolution of the central point of interest for the region, the exploitation of gold, the book informs careful about the vestiges and monuments important, some less known handles in the "Country", a name inherited directly from the Latin word terra.
The natural and permanent human presence are given special attention. In the latter case, the author, even if not historically left the reader clearly understand the origin of Moti, beyond their evolution through the Middle Ages, and modern and contemporary very well informed contribution to the formation of this segment Dalmatian component of Romanism. She was otherwise and clearly documented in the first decade of the XXI century by archaeological finds from Rosia Montana, caused by preventive research there, legally binding before the start of any surface gold mining in the area.
So, from the historical and geological description then travel recommendations, this book is a real gain in understanding the region and attraction for many people can be safe and is the Country Moti.
