From Crisis to Crisis: Soviet-Polish Relations in the 1970s
From Crisis to Crisis: Soviet-Polish Relations in the 1970s
By Vladimir Wozniuk
Iowa State University Press, 1987, 176 pp

A brief, unexceptionable study, based largely on Soviet and East European press and radio material, that adds little in the way of information to the existing literature on the subject. The author offers some interesting thoughts, however, on the influence of Eurocommunism in Eastern Europe, especially Poland, and on the difficult choices confronting the Soviet Union in dealing with Poland's revolution from below and the disintegrating authority of the Polish Communist Party.
