This is a pioneering volume destined to meet the growing demand for informative in-depth analysis of social changes in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. The book introduces and elaborates upon such significant concepts as: civil society, dissent, non-violence, post-Stalinism, conscientious objection and human rights. Dealing with present history, the book captures both its hidden and visible meanings. The principal author is a recognised authority on the entirety of the region called Eastern Europe. Uniquely familiar with both the official and dissident movements and personalities in the region, the author has invited a number of distinguished scholars and/or dissidents to contribute case-studies on Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and the Soviet Union; case-studies which interpret the magnitude and significance of the peace movement in Eastern Europe.
