Tito: The Story from Inside
A revealing, complex, and intimate portrait of Tito by his one-time, right-hand man. Milovan Djilas headed Yugoslavia's Communist Party with Tito before World War II; served with him during the war; and then became his vice president. But, in 1954, Djilas broke with the regime and afterwards was twice jailed as a dissident. Writing in prison and out, he produced this unequaled document, capturing Tito's aristocratic pretensions; appetite for luxury; relationships with women; betrayals; and brilliance as a leader--constantly defying the Soviets and always fearing for his country's future. 5 3/8 X 8 1/2.
