About this product
- DescriptionIn 1980, Polish workers astonished the world by demanding and winning an independent union with the right to strike, called Solidarity. It was the beginning of the end of the Soviet empire. Jack M. Bloom's Seeing Through the Eyes of the Polish Revolution explains how this happened, from the imposition to Communism to its end, based on 150 interviews of Solidarity leaders, activists, supporters and opponents. Bloom presents how Solidarity survived the imposition of martial law and how the opposition forced the government to negotiate itself out of power.
