Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning the internal situation in Bulgaria. The documents cover plenums and meetings of the Bulgarian Communist Party -- anniversary celebrations marking seventy-five years of the Bulgarian Agrarian People's Union -- and speeches delivered by major politicians including the Bulgarian leader, Todor Zhivkov. The file also covers attempts by the Bulgarian leadership to curtail the influence of western pop music -- amendments to the Bulgarian penal code -- elections to the Bulgarian state and ministerial councils -- a visit to Smolyan -- and a visit to an exhibition on "revolutionary vigilance". Documents in the file include despatches on "The Bulgarian Communist Mind" and "The Bulgarian Socialist Way of Life" -- press articles on Bulgaria's Turkish minority -- and a record of a meeting with Petar Tanchev, the leader of the Bulgarian agrarian union, which included discussion of the existence of two parties within the communist state.
