The Untold Story of the Cold War

Raya is a naïve but spirited girl growing up in Warsaw Pact Eastern Europe. As a young adult in the nineties, she buys a one-way ticket to the United States, eager to pursue opportunities away from Eastern Europe’s disintegrating society. What Raya discovers, however, is that the black and white polarity in Cold War Europe was just an illusion, and that one hemisphere is by no means better than the one she left behind.

Inspired by true events, About the Victor of the Cold War and the Emperor’s New Clothes is a fresh and bold exposition of one of the most defining periods of the twentieth century with a unique perspective on capitalism as the perfect economic solution to modern civilization’s prosperity. The book is also one girl’s quest for the truth amidst the noise of mass media and political doctrines, as she experiences life on both sides of the Iron Curtain, from one extreme ideology to another, in search for the answer to a utopian society.
