The media and intra-elite communication in Poland : organization and control of the media by Jane Leftwich Curry( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rand Corporation is conducting a multiyear comparative study of the role of the media in intra-elite communication in Communist countries. Western analysts of the political process in "closed" Communist systems necessarily rely heavily on the published and broadcast output of the mass and specialized media. These media are in part propaganda organs, but they also have other functions. A generation of Sovietologists has had to base much of its analysis of policies and politics on interpretations of media nuances. Yet their assumptions about the relationship between the media and the political actors whose behavior or attitudes are inferred from them have received little attention. The Rand study was initiated to fill this need. Its emphasis is not on techniques of content analysis, but rather on the process by which politically significant material appears in Communist-country media. The principal data base of the study is information obtained from interviews with 44 emigres formerly involved in the media process as writers, journalists, editors, censors, and government and Party officials. The results of this study are published in a Summary Report, which provides an overview and conclusions, and in a series of Rand Notes, which contain more detailed analyses and documentation of the research. This Note examines the structural and organizational factors that influence the output of Polish media. Section II reviews the changing position of the media in the Polish Communist system in the postwar period and provides a basis for understanding both the important general distinctions among the Stalinist, 1956, Gomulka, and Gierek periods and related changes in the instruments of Party control. Section III examines the various instruments by which the Party exercises direct and indirect supervision over the media. Sections IV and V describe key elements of the internal organization and editorial process, respectively, that affect the output of Polish media organs
The media and intra-elite communication in Poland : summary report by Jane Leftwich Curry( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rand Corporation is conducting a multiyear comparative study of the role of the media in intra-elite communication in Communist countries. Western analysts of the political process in "closed" Communist systems necessarily rely heavily on the published and broadcast output of the mass and specialized media. These media are in part propaganda organs, but they also have other functions. A generation of Sovietologists (and specialists on other Communist states) has had to base much of its analysis of policies and politics on interpretations of media nuances. Yet the assumptions of Sovietologists about the relationship between the media and the political actors whose behavior or attitudes are inferred from them have received little attention. The Rand study was initiated to fill this need. Its emphasis is not on techniques of content analysis, but rather on the process by which politically significant material appears in Communist-country media. The principal data base of the study is information obtained from extended interviews with 44 emigres formerly involved in the media process as writers, journalists, editors, censors, and government and Party officials. The Rand project utilizes this data base to examine the structure and process of Communist media; the study focuses on the medium in the expectation that this will enhance the analyst's ability to interpret its message. The results of this work on Polish media are published in the present report, which provides an overview analysis and conclusions, and in a series of Rand Notes, which contain more detailed analyses and documentation of the research. This report summarizes the major features of the Polish media system, describes the specific roles and editorial processes of major types of media, and analyzes the relationship between divergences of view that appear in the media and intra-elite discussion, debate, and controversy
The Polish crisis of 1980 and the politics of survival by Jane Leftwich Curry( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collapse of the Gierek leadership in Poland followed a two-month siege of workers' strikes ostensibly triggered by selective meat price increases. In fact, however, the collapse more accurately reflected the degree of political and social bankruptcy of the Party and state in Poland. The repercussions of the strikes have been devastating for the Party and its old leadership. Yet, in spite of the turmoil within the Party and its old leadership, as well as the search for alternatives which is now going on, Poland is still at a state where 'radical change in the political system is seen by the population as both absolutely necessary and completely impossible.' The problems and paralysis in Poland are far more acute than elsewhere in the Soviet bloc, but all these countries have similar problems. None of the bloc nations has entered the 1980s free from the specter of real economic crisis. Poland's is the first and most severe case but will certainly not be the last. (author)
Media control in Eastern Europe : holding the tide on opposition by Jane Leftwich Curry( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the communist leadership of Eastern Europe, control of the media's messages is a critical part of rule. For the populations over which they rule, access to that media and to true and comprehensive information is equally central. For the Soviet Union, tolerance of regimes in Eastern Europe requires that they maintain a media which does not openly challenge either the primacy of the Soviet Union or the leading role of the Party. As a result, conflicts in these societies always center around access to the mass media. When control by the communist leadership has diminished or been lost, the media transforms itself. And, when the media no longer reflect the leadership of the communist elite, liberalization has been brought to an end as a result of this and other moves away from Soviet control that the media reports.

The results of this study are published in a Summary Report, which provides an overview and conclusions, and in a series of Rand Notes, which contain more detailed analyses and documentation of the research. The Main Administration for Control of the Press, Publications, and Public Performances (GUKPPiW) is formally responsible for all censorship. GUKPPiW must monitor every public word in Poland, from obituaries to the mass media and artistic performances. To do this, its censors rely on their own sense of what is politically and culturally appropriate; on the political position and power of a contributor and the contributing producer; and on direct and indirect instructions and responses from Party and state institutions. This Note describes the censorship process in Poland and the ways in which GUKPPiW and other informal controls determine what information is made public

The results of this study are published in a Summary Report, which provides an overview and conclusions, and in a series of Rand Notes, which contain more detailed analyses and documentation of the research. This Note documents six case studies of controversy in Polish media: (1) The wide-ranging media campaign during the March 1968 crisis, which was directly linked with internecine political struggle within the Polish United Workers' Party (PUWP); (2) The "Falkowska debate" of 1964; (3) The differentiated treatment of the German question in the media in the late 1960s; (4) The 1971 media debate over the law on social parasitism; (5) The 1976 controversy over amendments to the Polish constitution; and (6) The media discussions of 1977 and 1978 concerning decentralization and unemployment
