Countdown the Polish Upheavals of 1956 1968 1970 1976 1980 Book Description:

From the imposition of Communism in 1944 through the hopes and betrayals that followed, Countdown is a chronicle of the Communist experience in Eastern Europe, of idealism and cynicism, of resistance and collaboration - often indistinguishable. It is at bottom a portrait of a divided country: of the ruling party and society embracing fundamentally different world views and set on a collision course. COUNTDOWN records the disintegration of the Polish Communist party and the integration of Polish society, culminating in the birth of Solidarity in August 1980. In the face of a totalitarian dictatorship, Polish society has achieved an independence, unity, and democratic commitment that the Communist party ignores at its own risk and that physical force cannot destroy. -- from dust jacket.
