Fatos Lubonja will be in the UK this month to promote his book, The False Apocalypse: from Stalinism to Capitalism
The False Apocalypse: from Stalinsim to Capitalism by Fatos Lubonja, translated by John Hodgson.
This unique and disturbing work concerns the events of 1997, a tragic year in the history of post-communist Albania. After the world’s most isolated country emerged from Stalinist dictatorship and opened to capitalism, many people fell prey to fraudsters who invited them to invest in so-called ‘pyramid schemes’. At the start of 1997, these pyramids crumbled one after another causing wide-spread demonstrations and protests.
