Revolution From Abroad

£14.99

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book appears to have no real issues, and the dust jacket is included. The jacket also appears to have no major issues, although the insides of the jacket have folded slightly, and there are a few markings as well. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition and appear to be mostly without any issue. If anything, there are some very minor markings and grubbiness on the edges of the pages.

Jan Gross describes the terrors of the Soviet occupation of the lands that made up eastern Poland between the two world wars: the Western Ukraine and Western Belorussia. His lucid analysis of the revolution that came to Poland from abroad is based on hundreds of first-hand accounts of the hardship, suffering, and social chaos that accompanied the Sovietization of this poorest section of a poverty-stricken country. Woven into the author's exploration of events from the Soviet's German-supported aggression against Poland in September of 1939 to Germany's attack on the Soviet Union in June 1941, these testimonies not only illuminate his conclusions about the nature of totalitarianism but also make a powerful statement of their own. Those who endured the imposition of Soviet rule and mass deportations to forced resettlement, labor camps, and prisons of the Soviet Union are here allowed to speak for themselves, and they do so with grim effectiveness.
