Communism Strikes at the Very Heart of the Human Soul Good-bye, Dracula was written at a time when nostalgia for communism was on the rise in the former Soviet bloc countries after the fall of the Berlin Wall. State property was quickly transferred to a few thousand people, mostly former high-level communist party officials and secret police top brass. This left a large portion of the people, both young and old, to struggle for their very existence. Political corruption became widespread and led to disappointment and anger. This book is more than a memoir. It allows the reader to experience communist Romania through the eyes of an innocent child growing up in the 1950s in Transylvania. It follows his life as a student and later as a member of the Romanian Foreign Intelligence Service, a powerful organization working directly for Nicolae Ceausescu, the leader of the Romanian Communist Party. This fascinating and personal account gives an insider's view of communism-and why it should never again be considered as a viable political option.
