Blue-Collar Workers in Eastern Europe

Edited by Jan F. Triska and Charles Gati
Allen & Unwin, 1981
320 pp. $37.50

Professional scholars with a deep knowledge of East European societies examine how and why the development of socialism there has meant increasing conflict between the urban proletariat and its self-appointed vanguard, the communist leadership. Readers might wish to see more attention given to the crucial case of Poland, but the breadth of the coverage (all of Eastern Europe including Yugoslavia) ensures good background for judging the effects of Polish developments on the rest of the region.
