The Soviet Dilemma

P Radhakrishnan The Road to Gdansk: Poland and the USSR by Daniel Singer, Monthly Review Press, New York and London, 1981; pp 256; $ 15/ THE book under review is on the dissident movement in Poland and the USSR, but its focus is on the latter, and developments in the former are portrayed only to portend what the author thinks is the most likely scenario in it. Considering its focus on the Soviet system, it is only to be expected that the book will have both its ideological adherents and adversaries. The purpose of this review, however, is to bring out the main issues discussed in an important, albeit controversial, treatise on the Soviet system, which has been largely ignored both by the Indian and the Western media for nearly two years after its publication.
