This book reconstructs the perceptions about mixed marriages across generations, starting from a detailed analysis of the statistical background and a description of this phenomenon in the historical past, and then focusing on the case history of families. As ethnic and religious diversity has long been an important source of social tension in Transylvania, mixed marriages have the potential to link the communities and act as a bridge between ethnic groups. Considering the multilevel analyses, the time frame from 1895 to nowadays as well as the historical past of Transylvania, this volume has a strong multidisciplinary character, predicated on a combination of historical, demographical and sociological methods.

The Quantitative Dimension of Mixed Marriages in Transylvania in the Interwar Period
Abstract: The interwar period remains, in Romanian historiography, a controversial and little researched segment of history. The authors have chosen a two-stage approach, the first part focusing on a description of the historical context, with emphasis on the ideological atmosphere of the period, and the second part being devoted to the actual quantitative analysis of the phenomenon of mixed marriages in Transylvania.
