Such surveys of Eastern Europe have appeared periodically, and it is good to have the latest one on the shelf. This volume is the product of a symposium held in January 1980, with some updating to take account of the Polish events later in that year. The chapters on individual countries, written mainly by younger scholars, are competently done. So are most of the others, by distinguished and well-known authorities, but as they have been writing about the region for as long as the Soviets have been there, do not look for novelty.
