Chapter Summary

The Soviet regime and the communist-dominated governments that emerged after the Second World War in Europe based their theory and practices of publishing and reading on a fixed and unquestionable definition of a book. The relatively liberal intellectual and academic environment in Poland during most stages of the Cold War provided a relatively fertile space for research on culture, at least in comparison with other countries in the Soviet satellite region. One of the most important trends that the Hungarian researchers observed was the controversial relationship between the improved living conditions of the local population and their reading habits, both across generations and across various urban and rural areas. Another project conducted by Kamarás's research team in the Soviet bloc was a unique large-scale study of the reception of one particular text: Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita.
