New CWIHP Working Paper: The Kuklinski Files and the Polish Crisis of 1980-1981: An Analysis of the Newly Released CIA Documents on Ryszard Kuklinski, by Mark Kramer

He focuses on the people's expression of grievances, and even riots; as opposed to "top-level" activities such as internal Communist Party struggles.
