The political joke is as old as politics - a classic form of popular social commentary that skewers even as it amuses. This book brings together some of the most mordantly funny examples of the genre: the jokes that proliferated (privately, of course) in Eastern Europe under the Warsaw Pact. Recalled by a Romanian Jewish emigre, these jokes not only form a sampling of political humour, they also offer a insight into the conditions that gave rise to the wave of reform and revolution which took place in that part of the world.
