Reuniting disciplines as oral history, cult ural anthropology, historical archives, imagology, the texts form a contribution brought to all these fields, but also to the study of ethnic relations and ethnopsychology. It is distinctive, because on a sociocultural level, the book impact is given by its contribution to integration through understanding of communities different as origin, religion, traditions, ethics, survival strategies in the midst of a Christian majority. This effort aims at bringing innovative approaches in the investigation of cultural and social identity dynamic, seen as a transforming social process within communities. From a constructivist perspective, by this project we reveal several examples of mechanisms in identity construction process. For local and national authorities it can be used as a guide for improving interethnic relations, knowledge and acceptance of Otherness. The book provides a scientific and pertinent survey on representative issues for Muslim history and cultural heritage in southeastern Romania, in order to complete the scientific research bibliography of Tatar and Turkish communities in the Balkans."
