'The general sense that the books offers is of thorough and solid documentation, thus seeming completely trustworthy in regard of the provided data. Even if aspects of this investigation have been revised and enhanced recently (e.g. Mihailescu-Bîrliba 2018), micromonographs for mainly rural provincial areas are scarce for this part of Europe, thus A. Tomas’s book serves as a methodological example, as well as an important source of information and data.'
