    But could it really have gone differently?

As civil society agents, unions may promote democracy within the wider society, especially in the case of authoritarian regimes or other rigid political systems, by acting as watchdogs and protecting hard-won democratic gains.

Another, two-hour strike took place on December

    What is more, the old methods of the Polish opposition were seen by the author as one of the cures for the ills afflicting Western countries. He traces the conflict between the ruling Communist Party and the opposition, Solidarity's response to it, and the resulting reforms. A "dissident" group, the Workers' Defence Committee KORwhich had originally been set up in to organize aid for victimized workers, attracted small groups of working-class militants in major industrial centers. Why was it meaningful to both ethnic groups is because the town it was in was populated by both and also the answer lies in the persona of Lanna himself. And hence its epilogue offers a unique reflection on the contemporary atmosphere of uncertainty and hope.
