Kind of hard to read, as local events interfere with his personal thoughts about party politics, and his own hardships.
Romania was given a political "free ride" for many years by the US. This was because of cheap and shallow political gestures against the Soviet Union made by Romania, such as sending athletes to the Olympics during the Soviet boycott. Meanwhile, the regime did Moscow's bidding where it really counted and also repressed the Romanian people to devistating extremes.
This book provides useful insight into many of the outrageous actions by the Romanian government and US refusal to do anything meaningful about it.
