East European Communities: The Struggle for Balance in Turbulent Times

By David A. Kideckel | Go to book overview
12.
Herein lies a clue to the power and of Vaclav Havel ( 1985) resistance. His insistence on "living in the truth" can be seen as an attempt to limit the internationalization or routinization of behaviors he saw as undesirable responses to a distorted system.

This same general outline is detectable in descriptions of agricultural reform elsewhere is eastern Europe. Skalnik ( 1993:224) suggests that Slovakian discussions of the new Land Act in 1991 included the possibility of "dissolving from above," but Pollak ( 1992) description of a single Slovak village more than a year latter, shows that some collectives continued successfully as revamped cooperatives. Kideckel ( 1992) account of decollectivization in Romania shows a similar softening of anti-collective attitudes on the part of the ruling National Salvation Front.
