Show Trials combines first-hand knowledge with hitherto unpublished, confidential material, to offer a penetrating and candid account of the Stalinist purges that occurred in Albanian, East German, Bulgarian, and Rumanian purges, as well as in Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. George Hodos shows how these trials played a pivotal role in consolidating Soviet domination over the satellite countries during Stalin's lifetime. As an important addition to our understanding of these events and times, Show Trials is essential for historians of Eastern Europe and absorbing reading for anyone interested in world affairs.

?. . . making his book not only a comprehensive history of the great frame-ups in the people's democracies, but also a masterful attempt to explain the logic of self-denunciation by former communist officials. . . . Hodos's book fills in many missing points in the history of Eastern Europe's Stalinization.?-Orbis
