    This book was loaned to me by an exile from Romania, he said I would be shocked and I was Reading this book made me feel so naive about the world political scene Once again faced with man s brutality and inhumanity toward man and how absolute power corrupts absolutely An eye opener about the whole spy network going on in the world makes me feel very sad and cynical about the prospects for out future.

    This book is painful read for numerous reasons Romania under Communism was no less tragic than Romania under Fascism One ventures into such subject matter knowing ahead of time that the information is going to be unpleasant But the book doesn t delve deeply into the real miseries caused Instead, the Ceau escu s are paraded out on nearly every page like grotesque marionettes, Pacepa the simple and nearly silent recorder of their excesses and venality That they were vain and megalomaniacal, I This book is painful read for numerous reasons Romania under Communism was no less tragic than Romania under Fascism One ventures into such subject matter knowing ahead of time that the information is going to be unpleasant But the book doesn t delve deeply into the real miseries caused Instead, the Ceau escu s are paraded out on nearly every page like grotesque marionettes, Pacepa the simple and nearly silent recorder of their excesses and venality That they were vain and megalomaniacal, I have no doubt But Nicolae Ceau escu rose to power and kept it for numerous years He couldn t have done so without a measure of intelligence and political savvy or without being propped up by collaborators In holding the positions he purports to have had, Pacepa must have done his share of the type of fawning he describes his colleagues doing As head of the DIE, his hands had to have gotten dirty accomplishing the deeds Ceausescu demanded I expected deeper revelations of the actual oppression prison conditions, numbers executed, etcthan the embarrassing antics of Elena and her son Nicu.Lastly, though there are numerous references to Jews, Germans, and Hungarians in Romania and Ceausescu s dislike and exploitation of them, I find it telling that there is only one passing reference to Gypsies, and that in the form of an adjective where a government official is describes as a Gypsy looking fellow For a country housing the largest Gypsy populations in the world, this is startling

    A very interesting account of the inner workings of Ceausescu s regime The book is a mixture of discussions on international relations, descriptions of the espionage tactics employed by the USSR and other communist countries, and accounts of what Ceausescu and the people closest to him were like From the point of view of someone who did not experience the communist regime first hand, but has seen the aftermath of it, this book allows a glimpse into the way in which everything was orchestrated, A very interesting account of the inner workings of Ceausescu s regime The book is a mixture of discussions on international relations, descriptions of the espionage tactics employed by the USSR and other communist countries, and accounts of what Ceausescu and the people closest to him were like From the point of view of someone who did not experience the communist regime first hand, but has seen the aftermath of it, this book allows a glimpse into the way in which everything was orchestrated, with the interest of only very few in mind If one wants to have a better understanding of the people behind the image created by the propaganda machine, I think that this book provides an interesting perspective Although it might have made it less accurate I would have liked it better if the author did not adhere to an objective storytelling style at all times, because I would have been curious to know his feelings towards the people who appear in the book At times the book goes into what I felt was too much detail when discussing certain events, but that might be because I started reading this book due to beinginterested in what Ceausescu and his wife were like as people, and less in the external affairs of that time Overall I really enjoyed it

    All his books are written as articles for tabloids everything has to be shocking, and bombastic.No detailed and sincere data like in the books of Mitrokhin or Gordievski.There is so much inexactness in the data that is available for anyone, that I cannot trust his secrets.He presents himself very detached from Ceausescu and the others I wonder how he could work for such a detestable regime for so long until he decided to switch sides.He does not say, and his motivations for deserting the r All his books are written as articles for tabloids everything has to be shocking, and bombastic.No detailed and sincere data like in the books of Mitrokhin or Gordievski.There is so much inexactness in the data that is available for anyone, that I cannot trust his secrets.He presents himself very detached from Ceausescu and the others I wonder how he could work for such a detestable regime for so long until he decided to switch sides.He does not say, and his motivations for deserting the regime do not ring true He did worse things before being asked by Ceausescu to attack Radio Free Europe journalists.Nevertheless his desertion crippled Ceausescu s foreign image and he have to thank him for doing it

    La vremea ei, sunt convins c a impresionat, n a fost pu in lucru s publici a a ceva n anul 1987, fie chiar i peste Ocean..Azi, n schimb, e mult prea evident partea fic ional , iar cei care se a teapt la memorialistic veritabil ori la dezv luiri senza ionale vor fi destul de dezam gi i.

    10% speculations and 90% aberrations This book represents Dictator Ceausescu like a genius who was thinking big, but in reality he was a just a simple stupid peasant Let s do not forget who the author was, how much damage he made and how many people suffered from his actions in communist Romania.
