Author Info

For the Soviet bloc the struggle against foreign radio was a principal front in the Cold War. Poland's War on Radio Free Europe, 1950-1989, tells how Poland conducted this fight, a key part of the wider effort to control the flow of information and ideas.

This is the first book in English to use the unique documents of Communist foreign intelligence operations so widely, and it also employes propaganda materials and personal interviews with RFE people and with party and security functionaries. The English translation reflects further discoveries of documentation since the original publication in Polish in 2007.

Pawe Machcewicz is Professor of Humanities at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toru and the author of Rebellious Satellite: Poland 1956. He was a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in 1994 and in 2007.
