    • Thanks for the link Thomas. I’ve been looking for this book since you mentioned it last year. I’ll put a link into my post about the so-called ‘Corfu Incident’ – for people who might want to investigate the matter further.

  1. Dear Comrades,
    Thanks for putting these books on your side. It has helped the people to learn about Albania and its contributions in the International Communist Movement. There are certain important books which has never been uploaded in the internet and these books are essential to overcome about the illusionf of the so-called “GREAT DEBATE” between USSR and China. The struggle against Titoite-Khrushchevite by the Party of Labour of Albania led by Enver Hoxha was little known to the lager world. On the other hand the Chinese perspectives were well circulated and projected as an alternative to Khrushchevite revisionism.

    I have mentioned the the following books published in between 1961-1964 which exposes the Titoite-Khrushchevite revisionism and also provide an alternative to Chinese perspective:

    1. The Ideas of MarxismLeninism Will Triumph on Revisionism
    English Edition, Tirana, 1962, pp 226.

    2. Oppose Modern Revisionism and Uphold MarxismLeninism and the Unity of the International Communist Movement
    English Edition, pp.420
    Published by- “Naim Frasheri” State Publishing Enterprise, Tirana, 1964

    3. The Belgrade Revisionist Clique — Renegades from Marxism – Leninism and Agents of Imperialism
    English Edition, pp.325
    Published by- “Naim Frasheri” State Publishing Enterprise, Tirana, 1964
    (The books contain thirteen articles originally published in Zeri i Popullit between Jan., 1962 and Sept., 1963. Articles are on the Belgrade Revisionist crusade against Marxism-Leninism and Tito’s policies and the many plots he hatched with Khrushchev).

    4. The Dangerous Maneuvers of N. Khrushchev’s Group on the So-Called Fight Against the “Cult of the Individual” Should Be Stripped Bare of Their Mask.
    English Edition, pp.123
    Published by- “Naim Frasheri” State Publishing Enterprise, Tirana, 1964.
    ( This books contains three articles reproduced from 1964 June 12, 13, 14 issues of Zeri-i-popullit Daily).

    If any one has the above books, kindly upload in the internet so to expose the Chinese perspective and provide the real Marxist-Leninist position on Modern Revisionism.



  2. Dear Comrdaes,

    It is due to Scribd policy. several of your document is not downloadable. Can you please send me the scanned document or upload them on site where it is easily downloadable. May be a word-press site.

    I have a book of cde Hoxha in Hindi that i will scan in next few months and upload it.

      • If that is the case then it is scribd, since I do not profit at all from uploading these works. I also just noticed that there are other pages on this website where you have various scanned works by Hoxha, documents of the PLA, etc. Good work!

        If anyone is confronted with a document I uploaded that they are asked to spend money on to read in full, email me at koco tosi [at] gmail dot com (no spaces) and I will send you said document.

        In December we plan on scanning some more works. Michael, if you email me I can give you a list of works we can get scanned, and help choose from among them.

        • Thanks for the clarification Thomas. I have other works I plan to add to the collection when I have time. Perhaps then we should co-ordinate to make sure there’s no duplication of effort.
