Revolution from Abroad by Jan T. Gross

Book Description

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.

Cannibal Island by Jan T. Gross Cannibal Island, Hardback (April 2007)

During the spring of 1933, Stalin's police rounded up nearly one hundred thousand people as part of the Soviet regime's "cleansing" of Moscow and Leningrad and deported them to Siberia. This work weaves this episode into a broader story about the Soviet frenzy in the 1930s to purge society of all those deemed to be unfit.

Fear by Jan T. Gross Fear, Hardback (June 2006)

Poland suffered an exceedingly brutal Nazi occupation during the Second World War - close to five million Poles were killed. This book attempts to answer the question: How was anti-Semitism possible in Poland after the war? It argues that postwar Polish anti-Semitism cannot be understood simply as a continuation of prewar attitudes.
