Summary
As much of Eastern Europe emerged after decades of communist rule, dictators in China, Vietnam, North Korea, Cuba, Syria, Iraq, Libya and Iran maintained a firm grasp on their power. Illustrating how overt defiance of external military or political foes has been employed with lasting success to shore up power, Paul Brooker examines the political structures, ideologies and economic policies of these eight dictatorships as a means of explaining their longevity
