The Seeds of Triumph: Church and State in Gomulka's Poland by Hanna Diskin



A comprehensive book on the opposition of Church and State in post-war Poland, compares the characteristics and consequences of this relationship during three different periods: the first and second periods of Gomulka's rule, and the Stalinist era between the two Gomulka periods. In examining the regime's policies, she covers the legal background, the general policy characteristics, the specific policies implemented during the period, and the role of the individual actors, most notably the pivotal role of the two main protagonists, Cardinal Wyszynski and Wladislaw Gomulka. Against this background, a Polish pope appeared and made a major contribution to the collapse of communism.
