This text examines the development of the Polish environmental movement as a lens through which to understand the "reconstruction of civil society" and the adaptation of a social movement to new political institutions. The book focuses on the period between Solidarity's formation in 1980 and the first years after the establishment of a Solidarity-led government in 1989. It argues that environmental groups, as a form of independent collective action aimed at changing official policies and institutions, were part of the larger social transformations that undermined communist rule.
