Albania Today – Political and Informative Review

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 the best 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, including art and culture.

Below is a link to a .doc article from Albania Today No 5, 1984. I came across this some time ago and as I’ve yet to get that far I thought I would post it now so that anyone interested in this topic would not have to wait until I get to 1984. I’m sorry I can’t remember the site where I was able to download this article and therefore can’t attribute the work done. I’ll just say thank you for whoever did so and if they get in touch I will then put a link to their website/blog. This article was originally published on pages 15-24 in the said issue under the title ‘The Marxist-Leninist Theoretical Thinking of the PLA and Comrade Enver Hoxha on the Socialist Development and Transformation of Agriculture’.
