Polnischer Protest

Author: Hella Dietz
Publisher: Campus Verlag
ISBN: 9783593504643
Release Date: 2015-10-08
Genre: Social Science

Die Entstehung zweier polnischer Protestbewegungen - der Solidarnosc und des weniger bekannten Komitees zur Verteidigung der Arbeiter (KOR) - scheint nach dem Zusammenbruch des Staatssozialismus nur noch von historischem Interesse zu sein. Hella Dietz gelingt es in ihrer Studie jedoch zu zeigen, dass die Analyse dieser beiden Bewegungen, die bislang nur selten soziologisch untersucht worden sind, vermeintliche Paradoxien der polnischen Gegenwart zu erklären hilft und die soziologische Theorie (des amerikanischen Pragmatismus, der Protestforschung, der Modernisierung und der Menschenrechtsforschung) weiterzuentwickeln vermag.
