Poland: Genesis of a Revolution

Poland: Genesis of a Revolution

Edited by Abraham Brumberg

Random House, 1983, 322 pp.

If one is seeking a single book that best describes the causes of Poland's eruption in 1980 and the meaning of the 15-month period of semi-freedom which followed, this may be it. Brumberg is an accomplished editor, and the contributing authors include some (L. Kolakowski, W. Brus, A. Smolar, T. Szafar) whose prior experience in Poland gives them special insight into recent events.
