[Ceauṣescu’s Police: Domination, Peace, and Order in Romania (1960–1989)]
Series:Südosteuropäische Arbeiten 159
Aims and Scope
The officially transmitted picture of the People’s Police in socialist Romania differs starkly from the conceptual view of its citizens. Individual “law-enforcers” were unprepared for the crumbling of their status, while the People’s Police as a whole could not come up with measures to stem this profound disenchantment. This affected the perception of the political regime as a whole and contributed to its gradual collapse in the 1980s.
