Socialist Albania Since 1944
Socialist Albania Since 1944
By Peter R. Prifti
MIT Press, 1978, 311 pp

The best general survey available on postwar Albania. Prifti tells us a great deal about the country and the system and gives at least a partial answer to why this small and impoverished country has broken successively with the "revisionist" regimes of Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, and now China, to become the only true Marxist-Leninist state in all the world.
