Independent Social Movements in Poland

By Peter Raina

London School of Economics and Political Science, 1981, 632 pp.

Supplementing the author's earlier Political Opposition in Poland, 1954-1977, this is essentially a source book including hundreds of statements and publications attesting to the vigor of the unofficial social and cultural life in Poland which undermined the communist system and produced the extraordinary outburst of popular opposition in 1980 and thereafter.
