The war discredited the political and social elite and gave opportunity for a new beginning. Early optimism in democratic circles, however, quicky, dissipated. With the help of the Soviet Army, the Communists, who had negligible indigenous support, in a short time managed to destroy any organized opposition to their taking power." "In this concise book, which is based on archival and other primary sources, Peter Kenez describes the methods of Communist conquest of power in one country in Eastern Europe and therefore allows us to better understand the origin of the cold war."--Jacket." ;
