Abstract

In My Life as a Spy: Investigations in a Secret Police File, Katherine Verdery offers insight into the history of communism in Romania by exploring the surveillance file created on her by the Romanian secret police (the Securitate), analysing the documents produced through the operation and the role played by informers and officers. The book will help readers to better understand the process by which ‘enemies of the state’ were constructed as well as the intimate experience of confronting this history, finds Vlad Onaciu.
