In the 1950's Eastern Europe was in the grip of Stalinism; still, many Western intellectuals mistakenly placed their hopes in the new world in the East. That time is now past, yet totalitarian thinking, whether of the left or the right, exerts - and will continue to exert - a powerful attraction on the minds of men. In this "brilliant book" (Irving Howe, The New York Times Book Review), Czeslaw Milosz takes us into the world inhabited by the people of Communist Poland, Czechoslovakia, Rumania and Hungary, and reveals in fascinating and frightening detail what happens to the human mind under totalitarianism: the often compelling reasons that lead men to embrace it and why - given the spiritual price of living on terms established by an omnipotent state - there is the urgent need to find political solutions elsewhere.
