    • Hello Manabhanjan,
      Of your list I only have ‘The Belgrade Revisionist Clique -….’. Give me a few days and I’ll try to get it scanned and posted on my blog. I’ll let you know when that happens.
      Of the same period I also have ‘Marxist-Leninist Ideology will certainly overcome Revisionism II’, Naim Frasheri, Tirana, 1964. 462 pages. It contains 12 articles from Zeri i Popullit from May 17, 1962 to June 29, 1963.
      Take care
      Michael

  2. Cloud you post the articule: “The Marxist-Leninist Parties – the leading force of the revolutionary movement today – Agim Popa”?

    Its look basic for reorganization of M-L movement…

    • Hello Comrades, I wish I could but I don’t have access to that issue at the moment. I plan to fill in the gaps in the late 1970s at some time in the future but don’t know exactly when that will be.

  3. Hi! Congratulations for your work…

    We are a marxism-leninist blog of Spain, we call us “Bitácora Marxista-Leninista” or “Bitácora (M-L)”.

    We are translated some editions of Albania Today from here, thanks to you.

    We want to know the next information:

    1) How can we know the next numbers that you will bring?

    2) We are interested in translate some articles, for example:

    ‘Mao Tse-tung thought’ – an anti-Marxist, counter-revolutionary theory – Servet Pëllumbi

    The Marxist-Leninist Parties – the leading force of the revolutionary movement today – Agim Popa

    The Chinese Social-imperialists – supporting the reactionary and Fascist regimes – Zeri i Popullit

    In China there is no Communist Party, but Clans and Factions Struggling with each other for Power – Zëri i Popullit

    Victory of the Nicaraguan people in their struggle for freedom and independence – Zeri i Popullit

    etc.

    Thanks!!

    • Hello Comrades. Glad that you are finding the magazines interesting. My ultimate aim is to post all the Albania Today issues published. I have a number of gaps in the early years but have most through the 1980s’. It’s a matter of finding the time, with wanting to work on my Albanian lapidar project. They will get there eventually.
      To translate the articles you wish would be a truly monumental task. In parallel to Albania Today there was a Spanish edition, Albania Hoy. It might be worthwhile trying to see if they are available in your country before embarking on the translation task. Unfortunately the only place where I know the Spanish version exists is in the National Library in Tirana

  4. Pingback: Communism and sexual revolution | Réseau International (english)

    • There’s a contradiction that in those societies (in the 20th century) that attempted the most revolutionary and radical transformation of their societies in terms of economics and politics did not extend such an approach to relationships and sexuality. Quite the reverse, in many cases, as the leaders of those societies took an almost extreme bourgeois approach towards morality.
      All of us brought up in a bourgeois, capitalist society carry with us the baggage of that society and even the most revolutionary of us can get it wrong at times.
      However, in preparation for the future round of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist led revolutions we will have to address this issue as part of our analysis of what went wrong in the past.
