Life is War: Surviving Dictatorship in Communist Albania by Shannon Woodcock is published today.
HammerOn are immensely proud to be publishing this book!
Life is War is a powerful collection of oral histories, written with integrity and honour that delves deep into the everyday lived experience of Albania’s communist regime, recounted through the memories of people who survived ‘that time.’
As Blendi Kajsiu writes in his recommendation, the book impressively blends scholarly and literary worlds: ‘rigorously academic in its investigation, at the same time it reads like a novel that you cannot put down.’
An EPUB version of the book, priced £10, will be available to download from the site within the next two weeks.
A Hardback version, for academic libraries, is available priced £64.99 / ISBN 978-1-910849-04-0.
You can pick up a copy of Life is War, and other HammerOn titles, from the HammerOn table at the Bristol Anarchist Book Fair on 30 April and the London Radical Book Fair 7 May.
We are also holding author Q & A events in London, Tirana and Bristol late May/ early June.
