The book concludes the doctoral series dedicated to the 18 “ţări” (“land”-type units) identified in Romania. Adapted to the needs of the local communities in the Land of Haţeg and following an integrated analysis plan for this territorial system, the book can be a tool for any other type of spatial planning documents. Throughout the six chapters of the book, all thoroughly documented and richly illustrated, the author rigorously treats the regional specificities and the existing territorial strengths and dysfunctions by using a complex, integrated regional-type approach. To accomplish the main goal of this research, namely “to achieve a useful tool”, the author “borrowed” from the historical, economic, ethnographic, geomorphological expertise, and not only, up to the point of achieving practicality.
