Inhaltsangabe: Following the Communist takeover of Romania in 1945, Dr. Stanciu Stroia refused to join the party, suffering professional humiliation and political persecution. He was arrested in 1951 and sentenced to seven years in prison; his estate was nationalized, his family exiled, and his practice confiscated. Ill with scurvy, he survived the prison ordeal and wrote his memoir, despite the risk of being detained again."Stanciu Stroia's fortitude is astonishing...My Second University has an important place in the prison literature published since 1989." - Keith Hitchins, Professor of History, University of Illinois"An utterly impressive prison memoir...a most necessary and valuable contribution to our understanding of the survival of human dignity under conditions of abysmal pressure." - Vladimir Tismaneanu, Professor of Government and Politics, University of MarylandMy Second University will take readers back to another place in time, in another country, seeing life through the eyes of a courageous man and others who chose to suffer rather than give up their freedom...It is a piece of history necessary to consume, necessary to remember." - Times Mail (Bedford, Indiana)With thirty-six pages of original photographs and one thousand never-before-published names of political detainees.For more information, please visit the author web site at http://DDusleag.Home.Insightbb.com.
