Securing the Communist State : The Reconstruction of Coercive Institutions in the Soviet Zone of Germany and Romania, 1944-1948, Hardback Book

Securing the Communist State : The Reconstruction of Coercive Institutions in the Soviet Zone of Germany and Romania, 1944-1948 Hardback

Part of the The Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series series

Description

In Securing the Communist State, Liesbeth van de Grift provides a new understanding of these organizations using recently disclosed material from the communist archives in Berlin and Bucharest.

She reveals how these communist parties gained control over the security apparatus after 1945 in East Central Europe from a transitional justice perspective, focusing on purges and personnel policies.

This book shows that the personal break after 1945 was not as radical as is often thought.
