I must confess that prior to reading this book I had little to now functional knowledge about the country of Albania, apart from a vague idea of where it sits geographically, and some of the politics of the region. I’m always keen to learn more about areas of the world which are outside my knowledge, and the story of the communist dictator’s dominance of the country for 40+ years is an amazing, horrifying tale.
It’s been more than 30 years since Hoxha died, and yet important stories like these are still only now coming out from behind the iron curtain.
An informative read. Thanks to NetGalley for a review copy.
