Enver Hoxha. "ALBANIA CHALLENGES KHRUSHCHEV REVISIONISM [speeches, reports, letters, radiograms (June December 1960) pertaining to the Moscow Conference of the 81 Communist and Workers' Parties]" (Materials extracted from Volume 19 of Enver Hoxha's Works in Albanian. Published by: Gamma Publishing Co., New York, English edition , October 1976).
Enver Hoxha. "ALBANIA CHALLENGES KHRUSHCHEV'S REVISIONISM [speeches, communications, letters, radiograms (June-December 1960) relating to the Moscow Conference of Representatives of 81 Communist and Workers' Parties]".

Enver Hoxha. "YOGOSLAV "SELF-ADMINISTRATION" A CAPITALIST THEORY AND PRACTICE" (Enver Hoxha. "YUGOSLAV "SELF-ADMINISTRATION" - CAPITALIST THEORY AND PRACTICE", publishing house "8 NĖNTORI", TIRANA, 1979, English edition ).
The work, written as a response to the book of one of the main Titoite ideologists E. Kardelj "The direction of development of the political system of socialist self-government", reveals the economic, political and ideological foundations of the so-called Yugoslav "socialism", nourished by imperialism to counteract the growing strength of the world that emerged after the Second World War system of socialism with the aim of weakening it and gradually eroding the socio-economic system that expresses the interests of the proletariat and its allies.
Tearing off the masks from the heralds of Titoism, Enver Hoxha proves that the Yugoslav system of "self-government" is a revision of Marxism-Leninism in theory and practice in the interests of the "new bourgeoisie" living off the unrestrained exploitation of ordinary workers.
Subsequent historical events with the organic growth of the republics of the disintegrated Yugoslavia into the world capitalist system only confirmed the author's brilliant analysis of the foundations of Tito's revisionism.

Enver Hoxha. Reflections on China. Volume I (1962-1972). Extracts from the Political Diary. (Enver Hoxha. Reflections on China. Volume I (1962-1972). Excerpts from the Political Diary. 8 NĖNTORI Publishing House, TIRANA, 1979, English edition ).
Chinese revisionism came out openly in the early 1970s, but it did not emerge at that time, much less after the death of Mao Zedong. Its ideological and theoretical roots go back to the so-called "Mao Zedong idea", which began to emerge especially after 1935, when Mao Zedong became the head of the Chinese Communist Party. At first, it was passed off as "wandering Marxism-Leninism", and later as "Marxism-Leninism of our days" or as "the highest stage of Marxism-Leninism."
In his reflections, which are notes and assessments arranged in chronological order, Enver Hoxha, from the scientific positions of Marxism-Leninism, proves that Maoism is a counter-revolutionary theory designed to “theoretically substantiate” the strategy of turning China into an imperialist superpower, to legitimize its course towards an alliance with the United States , Japan and Western Europe, as well as his desire to establish his dominance over the countries of the so-called "third world".

The second book of the most important work of Enver Hoxha, in which he subjects Maoism to a comprehensive analysis as one of the most dangerous branches of modern revisionism.
The "Mao Tse Tung idea," says Enver Hoxha, is completely different from Marxism-Leninism. It is an amalgam of views, a mixture of ideas and positions borrowed from Marxism-Leninism and Confucian, Buddhist, anarchist, Trotskyist, Titoite, Khrushchevist, Eurocommunist ideas and positions that decently smack of nationalism and racism.
That is why the Communist Party of China, which adopted Maoism, has never been a true proletarian party in terms of ideology, politics, composition, and organizational building; The bourgeois-democratic revolution in China did not develop into a socialist revolution, did not lead to the establishment of a real proletarian dictatorship, and did not put the country on the true path of socialist development.

Enver Hoxha. With Stalin. Memoirs". (Enver Hoxha. "With Stalin. Memoirs." Publishing house "8 NĖNTORI", TIRANA, 1979, English edition ).
After the death of Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, the Khrushchev group applied all its strength to the struggle against the Marxist-Leninist course of the Bolshevik Party, which led to the victory of the October Revolution and the building of socialism, and replaced its course with a new, revisionist, counter-revolutionary, social-imperialist course, liquidating the dictatorship of the proletariat, the entire socialist system and restored capitalism.
In the presented book, published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the outstanding Marxist-Leninist, Comrade E. Hoxha, citing numerous convincing facts and arguments, defends the personality and revolutionary cause of I.V. Stalin, rejecting all the fabrications and slanders raised against him by the Khrushchevites in order to destroy Marxism-Leninism and socialism. He again notes the invariable opinion of the Party of Labor of Albania that the restoration of the truth about the personality and historical cause of Stalin is a great question of principle and an important task in the fight against modern revisionism.

Enver Hoxha. "The Anglo-American Threat to Albania (Memoirs of the National Liberation War) " [Enver Hoxha. "The Anglo-American Danger for Albania (Memoirs of the National Liberation War) ", 8 NĖNTORI publishing house, TIRANA, 1982, English edition ].
This publication is the reflections of Enver Hoxha, written by him in 1975, about the period of the national liberation war of the Albanian people. They reflect his personal impressions and conclusions regarding the open or covert hostile activities of the Anglo-American bourgeois alliance against the struggle of the Albanian people for freedom and independence.
On the one hand, the memoirs, on the one hand, expose the plans of Anglo-American imperialism to include Albania in its sphere of influence, on the other hand, tell about the struggle of the Albanian Labor Party, the Government of People's Albania, the heroic people of this small Balkan country to uncover intrigues, counteract provocations and direct aggression on the part of the forces of world reaction, supported by internal collaborators.

Enver Hoxha. REFLECTIONS ON THE MIDDLE EAST. 1958 - 1983. Extracts from the political diary " (E. Hoxha. "Reflections on the Middle East. 1958 - 1983. Excerpts from the Political Diary", 8 NĖNTORI publishing house, TIRANA, 1984, English edition ).
The materials included in this book are excerpts from Enver Hoxha's "Political Diary" related to the assessment and analysis of the situation in the Middle East.
Although the author’s reflections and conclusions were made several decades ago, his brilliant comprehensive Marxist-Leninist analysis, revealing the origins, conditions, internal and external causes of the Middle East conflict, has not lost its relevance to the present, having found its confirmation in the events in this region already in XXI century.
The book is also of interest because it reflects the official position of the Party of Labor of Albania and the People's Socialist Republic of Albania on all issues under consideration, which included active support for the anti-imperialist and anti-social-imperialist struggle of the peoples of the countries of the Middle East, participation in the work of various international organizations, the UN and so on.

Enver Hoxha. “Laying the foundations of the new Albania. (Memoirs and historical notes) " (E. Hoxha. "When the foundations of the new Albania were laid. (Memoirs and historical notes) ", reprint edition of the book published by the publishing house "8 NĖNTORI", TIRANA, in 1984, prepared and published by WORKERS' PUBLISHING HOUSE, London, England; English edition ).
The real memoirs and reflections of Enver Hoxha about the glorious heroic period of the national liberation struggle of the Albanian people for their freedom and independence were published in 1984 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the liberation of Albania and the victory of the people's revolution.
It was during these years that the future of socialist Albania was laid, as an impregnable fortress, against which the Titoites and their Anglo-American patrons first broke their teeth, and then the Khrushchevite revisionists.
The history of the Albanian revolution, which began with the winning of national independence and the establishment of a people's democratic system and continued with the consolidation of the state of people's democracy as a form of proletarian dictatorship with the liquidation of the economic basis of capitalism and the building of a socialist society, is part of the glorious history of the struggle of the world proletariat and all the oppressed and exploited classes for their release.

The materials of this collection testify to the centuries-old friendship and cooperation of the fraternal Albanian and Greek peoples, bound by a common destiny, a common struggle against the same enemies.
This book is about the correct solution of the national question under the conditions of the state of the dictatorship of the proletariat. It was during the years of socialist construction that the Greek national minority in Albania received the same genuine rights and freedoms as the main Albanian population of the country.
