It’s a guide for the hidden communists, if they happened to be arrested and interrogated. I’m sure there’s other communist and carbonara bibliography regarding privacy.

And perhaps you would like to peruse the biblio of this masters:

Oh wow. It’s quite a strong one. I you happen for find one about privacy in those archives where you found this one, put it up here :slight_smile:

I wasn’t able to find that master’s bibliography. Do you know where I can find it? War is not really my thing (quite the opposite), but there might be something cool in the suggested books.

Another great one:

Where do you usually get these books?

I usually I like to buy these anonymously because nobody has the right to know what I’m reading. And I tend to prefer physical copies which I usually get through Fnac.

If I can’t find a physical copy, then I pirate them.

Once I know a way to get them legitimately without associating my name with that purchase, I will get them legit online. But until then…
