We draw parallels between Romania in 1989 and Egypt and Tunisia today.
To hear our part of the show, fast-forward to 1:24:00 in the Jim Bohannon Show audio player!
Here’s the introduction from The Jim Bohannon Show:
The events in Egypt may sound familiar to some. In a way, the same sort of thing took place almost 22 years ago in Romania.
We’ll chat for a while tonight about the similarities — and the differences — with former U.S. Ambassador to Romania Jim Rosapepe and his wife, former ABC News correspondent Sheilah Kast, who have co-written the book “Dracula Is Dead: How Romanians Survived Communism, Ended It, and Emerged since 1989 as the New Italy” (published by Bancroft Press).
It’s an amazing tour of an amazing land — beyond Dracula, beyond orphans, beyond Communism — to the vibrant culture, unique history, and 21st Century skills that define modern Romania. (The book’s website is www.DraculaIsDead.com.)
