This selection of papers was first presented in August 1995, and was developed further at a conference held at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, in April 1996. The primarily Eastern European scholars who have contributed to this volume discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the Stalinist project for Poland, between 1945 and 1956. Their articles, many of which are based on newly opened archival materials, explore topics such as the building of a one- party state, the ways Polish peasants responded to Stalinism, the social protests and political crisis of 1956, and the reactions of Polish leaders to the Hungarian Revolution and its suppression.
