So in studying Enver Hoxhas forty-year reign (1945-85) it is necessary to recognize him as a leader who accomplished great things for Albania while concurrently enmeshing the country in policies that were not only counterproductive but self-destructive. This book studies a wide range of areas pertaining to Hoxhas impact upon Albanias development.
