Explores the foreign policy of the ruling Communist Party of Poland in terms of how much was determined by national interests--both of the government and of the populace--and how much was determined by such external forces as the internationalist ideology of Marxism, and pressure from the Soviet Union. Acidic paper. Distributed by Columbia U. Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
