Hidden Paths

The section entitled Hidden Paths examines alternative forms of connection in what was known as the second public sphere, including samizdat, writings which were smuggled out of prisons, and ironic or satirical criticisms of the system. It also presents several of the responses that were made by the regime to these forms of cultural opposition, such as imprisonment, censorship, and exile.
