Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning unrest in Poland and concerns over possible intervention by the Soviet Union. The documents include research papers examining the political and economic events that have led to strikes and unrest in Poland -- correspondence between Western governments, including the U.S., Canada, and France, concerning fears that the Soviet Union may intervene militarily in the crisis -- and British policy towards the situation, including political and economic contingency-planning for a Soviet invasion of Poland. Other documents in the file cover Polish requests for economic aid -- reports of activities on the Soviet-Polish border -- articles on the situation in Poland in the Soviet press -- and discussions with Soviet officials on possible military action. The file also includes a despatch examining the issues facing the Soviet Union as it attempts to retain control over the governments of Eastern Europe.
