Synopsis: First published underground in Poland in 1984, this inside look at Communist subjugation is now available to the English reader. Nowhere has the takeover of any East-Central European country been so searchingly documented by a writer who was living at the time under the imposed Communist regime. Kersten's political analysis and bright narrative will inspire anyone interested in contemporary European history.
The author assiduously details the Communist Party's manipulation of Polish society, media, and politics. With remarkable objectivity she depicts the political scene during the critical period from the final years of World War II to the consolidation of Stalinism at the end of 1948.
