Katholische Gruppierungen in Polen: Pax und Znak 1945-1976

By Andrzej Micewski

Relations between the Communist regime in Poland and the still-powerful and popular Catholic Church have been marked by a combination of enmity and uneasy practical compromise. The character and role - well described in this book - of the two main Catholic political organizations - Pax, which served the regime, and Znak, which opposed it but within the law - represented alternative reactions to that basic correlation of forces. The author is a member of Znak.
