Example text

Arrested workers were routinely beaten and tortured. Their legal rights were drastically curtailed and trials were often conducted 'in camera' or before a specially selected audience. The brutality and the lawlessness of the aftermath of the June 1976 strikes initiated a strong reaction among intellectuals and students. The Workers' Defence Committee (KOR) was created by a group of concerned intellectuals (see Lipski, 1983; Raina, 1978). The committee and its supporters organized financial, legal and medical assistance for victims and their families.

Moreover, the new class had an exclusive right to distribute the national funds, to set wages, to plan and manage production, and so forth (Djilas, 1957). While Djilas initially saw this new class in the context of the state capitalism, he has since radically revised his interpretation. In a recent interview, he used the label 'industrial feudalism' as the most accurate description of the Soviet system, where social relations are similar to those between vassals and their superiors.
