NEW RELEASE – The Kilt Behind the Curtain: A Scotsman in Ceaușescu’s Romania, by Ron Mackay…

Genre: Memoir

Synopsis:

Sent deep behind the Iron Curtain to Bucharest by the British Government in 1967, Ronald Mackay serves as the “sharp end” of a trade initiative. How will he fare in a communist-run Romania where suspicion abounds and Ceausescu’s Secret Police are everywhere?

With irony-tinged humour, Ronald tells of seductive informants; an ex-political-prisoner-turned-spy; fearful minorities; a hunting trip with the Communist elite; travels in Dracula’s Transylvania; of running into a company of armed tanks; and of threatening Charles de Gaulle’s attempt to be the first Western premier to court this bright but baffling tyrant-run country.
