Books Are Weapons, Siobhan Doucette Paperback.
Much attention has been given to the role religion and labor played in the historic overthrow of communism in Poland during the 1980s. Books are Weapons presents the first study of the third major pillar of the opposition?the Polish intellectual media. Siobhan Doucette presents a comprehensive examination of the independent Polish press and its crucial role in the events leading to the Round Table and popular elections of 1989. While other studies have purported that the Solidarity movement brought about civil society in 1980-1981, Doucette instead argues that the independent press was the binding element in the establishment of a true civil society during the mid- to late-1980s.
ááááááááááá Based on a thorough investigation of underground publications, interviews, and security service reports from 1976?1989, Doucette shows how the intellectual press, through its publications, uncensored positions, and tactical proposals, evolved from a small group of dissidents into a broad opposition movement with cross-national ties and millions of sympathizers?the binding force in the resistance to communism and the rebuilding of Poland?s civil society.
