Albania Today 1990

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.

Albania Today: Index 1971 – 1979, Index 1980 – 1984, Index 1985 – 1990

Albania Today: 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979 (missing), 1980 (missing), 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987 (missing), 1988, 1989.

1990 was the last year that the magazine was published. Matters were chaotic during the year and distribution wasn’t guaranteed. Some of the articles also demonstrate the manner in which the Party sought to deal with the increasingly unstable situation that was developing throughout Eastern Europe. All those efforts came to nothing. To the best of my knowledge issue No 5 (114) was the last ever published.
