TO THE STRUGGLE AGAINST
THE IMPERIALIST SUPERPOWERS
Comrade ENVER HOXHA'S new book
«The Superpowers» is a mirroring of the correct revolutionary, internationalist policy which our Party and proletarian state have pursued and applied in the field of international relations from the first day of their founding. It is a clear testimony to the resolute and clearcut stand of our Party and people towards the imperialist super powers.
THE PUBLICATION OF THE NEW BOOK BY THE GLORIOUS LEADER OF OUR PARTY AND PEOPLE, COMRADE ENVER HOXHA, THE SUPERPOWERS, WAS RECEIVED WITH JOY, GREAT INTEREST AND A NATURAL FEELING OF PRIDE BY THE COMMUNISTS AND ALL WORKING PEOPLE WHO ARE READING AND STUDYING IT ATTENTIVELY.
THIS BOOK IS ANOTHER WORK OF GREAT IMPORTANCE WHICH TREATS CONTEMPORARY WORLD PROBLEMS. IT CONSISTS OF EXTRACTS FROM THE POLITICAL DIARY ON INTERNATIONAL QUESTIONS AND MAKES A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF ALL THE ASPECTS OF THE POLICY AND STANDS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE SOVIET UNION FROM JUNE 1959 TO DECEMBER 1984.
Through numerous notes, reflections, political panoramas of a deep scientific content, which have been written with a fine style, the author describes the evolution of the superpowers, explains what they represent and what is the main characteristic of their internal and external policy, what is the nature of their real strategy, the place and role which they play in the various political developments of our time. The all-sided analyses, backed up with convincing argument and facts, the answers to and the conclusions drawn from these questions, not only bear the stamp of the time but also have a great value for grasping and forming a real understanding of the whole extent of the essence of the policy and strategy of American imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism today. These materials also reveal the Marxist-Leninist thinking of our Party and Comrade Enver Hoxha on political questions which preoccupy the whole mankind today, the stands and the struggle of our Party and people against the superpowers and the other imperialist powers.
In the present conditions when all the contradictions of the world capitalist-revisionist system have become extremely acute and a troubled situation fraught with grave consequences for the whole mankind has been created as a result of the all-round economic, political and spiritual crisis which has all this system in its grip, the book The Superpowers constitutes, as a whole, a stern indictment against the two biggest powers of our time, the United States of America and the Soviet Union, these savage enemies of the peoples, the main cause of the peoples' servitude, exploitation and misery, the instigators of local and regional fierce conflicts, the supporters behind the forces of darkness, the creators of the situations of instability, full of threats and dangers to peace and general security.
The book makes a most complete portraying of the rea2tionary and aggressive nature of American imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism, these two «international gangsters», as the author describes them, who try to use «fire and dollars, trickery, rubles and demagogy» to hit the peoples and nations, and to keep them under their dictate. «The policy and activity of the two superpowers», Comrade Enver Hoxha points out in his book, «now attacks not only a single country or some separate countries. It affects entire zones and continents... The peoples of the world are faced with a new general onslaught of the American and Soviet imperialists.»
On the basis of a penetrating scientific analysis which he makes of the important events in the international political life, for a period of 25 years, through the interpretation of these events from the prism of dialectical and historical materialism, the author expounds on and extensively analyses all the elements that concurr to the process of the strengthening and increase of arbitrariness of the two big powers, and the process of their inevitable degradation and decay. Along these two lines, he discloses their individual and common features, the role they play and the place they occupy in the various political situations of our time, the relations between them, with their characteristic alliances, and rivalry, the relations of each of them with its own «allies», their internal and external contradictions, the plots and intrigues they hatch up at the expense of the peoples, and especially the shaking foundations of their structures, the successive irreparable defeats which they suffer as a result of the great struggle of the peoples.
A special place in the pages of this book is devoted to the analysis which Comrade Enver Hoxha makes of the aims and efforts of American imperialism to keep the peoples and nations under political, economic and military bondage, and the exposure of the role of international gendarme which it plays by means of blackmail, dictate and military aggression, by means of its policy of «aid» and «offers», without desisting from the use of economic sanctions and blockades against the freedom-loving peoples and sovereign countries. In this context, the book offers a complete picture of the anti-European policy of Washington, which began with the Marshal Plan, with the creation of NATO, and continues today with the deployment of American nuclear headed missiles on the European territory, which constitute a serious threat to the freedom of the peoples of our continent.
Besides reflections on the American policy from the end of the Second World War to our days, the book also dwells on the regressive process which occurred in the Soviet Union with the advent to power of the Khrushchevites. the destruction of the socialist order and the creation, in its place, of a new capitalist and social-imperialist power thirsting for world domination. In the very grave moments which the socialist camp and the world communist movement was experiencing in the beginning of the sixties, Comrade Enver Hoxha, in a series of writings which open this book, points out the incontestable fact that the Party of Labour of Albania clashed with the Khrushchevites over cardinal political and ideological issues, that it was the first to raise its voice against the Khrushchevites' betrayal and in defence of Marxism-Leninism, socialism and the peoples' liberation movement. And, at the same time, it was the Party of Labour and the Albanian people who first saw the whole extent of the savagery and arrogance of this revisionist great state, who experienced its political and military pressure and blackmail, the economic blockade which threatened our people with famine. Tempered through fierce clashes with many enemies, the Party of Labour of Albania and the Albanian people, as we learn from the materials of this book, coped with this difficult test with a cool head, with unprecedented courage and heroism, declaring merciless ideological war on modern revisionism, headed by Soviet modern revisionism. This struggle of the Party of Labour of Albania was vital to the destinies of the Albanian people, it was also a great contribution to the common cause of the peoples, who are warned from the beginning about the new dangers with which a new superpower, disguised with a socialist mask, threatened them.
In the book «The Superpowers, Comrade Enver Hoxha, with his militant spirit of an outstanding Marxist-Leninist of our time, champions and supports the lofty aspirations of the peoples and proletarians the world over, exposing the military aggressions, interferences and invasions committed by the United States of America and the Soviet Union against other countries and regions, their feverish preparations for world war, their armaments race and nuclear tests, as well as the continuous strengthening of their military blocs, NATO and the Warsaw Treaty, the equipment of their military bases with new missiles, and the «star wars» for the conquest of the space. It likewise exposes the policy of deals behind the scenes and nuclear blackmail, the intrigues which they hatch up in UNO and elsewhere, the deals between their chiefs in summit meetings, the support they give the fascist regimes and military juntas.
The book also dwells on the policy of the other imperialist and social-imperialist powers of «United Europe» and China, their efforts to become superpowers, their relations with the United States of America and the Soviet Union, the rapprochement, clashes and contradictions among them.
By coming out in defence of the lofty aspirations of the peoples, their just struggles and wars for freedom and independence, Comrade Enver Hoxha strongly affirms that any people is in a position to live free and independent in its own country, to march ahead and advance without stretching its hand to either superpower, without their credits and atomic umbrellas.
“The Superpowers” is a mirroring of the correct revolutionary, internationalist policy which our Party and proletarian state have pursued and ap-lied in the field of international relations from the first day of their founding. It is a clear testimony to the resolute and clear-cut stand of our Party and people towards the imperialist superpowers. Comrade Ramiz Alia has pointed out, «Our country has been and remains the staunch opponent of the aggressive and expansionist policy of American imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism, an irreconcilable fighter against the reactionary, bourgeois and revisionist ideologies. Our stand towards them has been clear-cut and will remain so... We cannot reconcile ourselves and have relations with those who are to blame for all the suffering and evil done to mankind, we cannot be friends and comrades with those who threaten the world with atomic annihilation.»
In the study of the new book, The Superpowers, the communists and our working masses find important teachings which help them to acquaint themselves with the complicated international situations, to raise their revolutionary vigilance towards the plots and intrigues of the imperialist and social-imperialist enemies to a higher level. In it they find the inexhaustible revolutionary inspiration to march further ahead on the brilliant road of socialism on which our glorious Party, its Central Committee, with Comrade Ramiz Alia at the head, are leading us.
