Review: The Haunted Land: Facing Europe's Ghosts After Communism

User Review  - Bita - Goodreads

I had thought this book was about the countries after the fall of communism and the state of their economy and govt and so on. But it was mostly about what happened to their secret police. I only read the sections on Czeckoslovakia and east Germany. Pages and pages on two people only. Read full review
