Albania Today was a political and informative review produced bi-monthly from the first issue that appeared in November/December at the end of 1971 until everything hit the fan in 1990.

For 20 years it was one way to keep up with the political developments within the country, including its relationship with the People’s Republic of China.

Although there is an emphasis on political statements and speeches there are also insights into the changes, developments and ideas existing within Albanian society during the 1970s and 1980s.

Numbers 5 and 6 for 1972 are very large files and so are reproduced here in two parts.
