The enthusiasm of Poles for freedom has made this book possible
The enthusiasm of Poles for freedom has made this book possible. Polish historians and sociologists rushed to fill in the white spots of Polish history even before the Berlin Wall was rendered into rubble.

It is a most worthwhile book that challenges both common (mis)understandings and academic arguments about political change.
Using newly available documentary sources, Maryjane Osa establishes links between activists during three waves of protest: 1954 to 1959, 1966 to 1970, and 1976 to 1980. She shows how political challengers, applying lessons drawn from past failures, developed an ideological formula to de-emphasize divisive issues and promote symbolic concerns, thus facilitating coalition building. Solidarity was therefore able to take advantage of a large opposition network already well in place before the founding of the union. An important case study in itself, the book also answers one of the most intriguing questions in social movement research: how can movements emerge in authoritarian states-where media are state controlled, the rights of assembly and speech are restricted, and the risks of collective action are high?
