Description - Ana Pauker by Robert Levy
Ana Pauker is often thought of as the puppet of Soviet communism in Romania enforcing the most brutal and repressive Stalinist regime. This biography however, intends to oppose this picture and reveal a woman of remarkable strength, dominated by conflict and contradiction far more than dogmatism. Telling the story of Pauker's youth in an increasingly anti-Semitic environment, her commitment to a revolutionary career, and her rise in the Romanian Communist movement, the author makes no attempt to whitewash Pauker's life and actions, but rather explores her complicated persona.
