Rebellious Satellite: Poland 1956

Pawel Machcewicz offers a social history of the mass movements that prompted political change and altered Polish-Soviet relations in 1956 but avoided a Soviet armed response. He focuses on the people's expression of grievances, and even riots; as opposed to "top-level" activities such as internal Communist Party struggles.
