Enver Hoxha – Memoirs, Diary Selections and Compilations of Articles
On this page I propose to make available for download a series of books that were produced (mainly in the late 70s or early 80s of the last century) containing some of Enver Hoxha’s Memoirs, Diary Selections and Compilations of Articles. Many of these would not have been published widely at the time they were written. This is especially the case with those matters that are directly related to the Communist Party of China and the acrimonious break between Albania and China after the death of Chairman Mao Zedong. There are also some publications which may not have an obvious home on any of the other Enver Hoxha pages on this blog. Many have been scanned by the comrades at Enver Hoxha – His Life and Works and I am, again, very grateful for their work.
