This chapter provides some background information about Poland as a whole, giving the context for the more detailed examination of livelihoods in specific Polish locations. It uses the term ‘post-communist’, the adjective preferred by political scientists, in preference to ‘post-socialist’, a label used by some sociologists and anthropologists. It explains that the Polish political system from 1944–89 is far from ‘socialist’, as social democrats understand the term. It notes that communist party rule, however, is a reality.

Keywords:   Poland, livelihoods, post-communist, political scientists, post-socialist, sociologists and anthropologists, Polish political system, social democrats, communist party rule
