Books about Bulgarian history in foreign languages are few and far between. This is particularly true for this nation's recent past as a Communist country. While some international researchers with an interest in 20th century history are aware that Bulgaria was a loyal Soviet ally between 1944 and 1989, just a limited number know what Bulgaria and its people looked like under Communism. Even most younger Bulgarians do not know much about this period of their country's past while the older generations increasingly feel nostalgic about it.
