Security Empire : The Secret Police in Communist Eastern Europe, Hardback Book

Security Empire : The Secret Police in Communist Eastern Europe Hardback

Part of the Yale-Hoover Series on Authoritarian Regimes series

Hardback

Description

A compelling examination of the establishment of the secret police in Communist Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Eastern Germany This book examines the history of early secret police forces in Poland, Czechoslovakia, and East Germany in the aftermath of the Second World War.

Molly Pucci delves into the ways their origins diverged from the original Soviet model based on differing interpretations of communism and local histories.

She also illuminates the difference between veteran agents who fought in foreign wars and younger, more radical agents who combatted "enemies of communism" in the Stalinist terror in Eastern Europe.
