This work analyzes the events leading to the overthrow of the one-party state in Albania, the end of communism and the transistion to democracy. It is divided into historical sections which trace the disintegration of the communist system, culminating in the Winter of Anarchy of 1990-91 and the fortunes of the National Unity and Democratic Party governments after 1991. It also analyzes the cultural and social impact of these changes and explores the emerging crises facing the Albanian peoples in neighbouring Kosova and Macedonia. Special attention is paid to the problems of the significant Greek minority, the crucial question of religion, the military and national security and Albania's foreign relations. The book is based on interviews, research in Albania's newly opened archives and the author's personal participation in the events they describe.
