About article:

Freedom to elect political representation was one of the clearest manifestations of the transformations taking place in the Eastern Bloc countries. The transformations alluded to favour a diversification of voting behaviour along the lines of profession, group in society and whether a person was a country-dweller or an inhabitant of an urban area. For its part, the work described here was focused on the last issue, seeking to diagnose what spatial differences there might be to voting behaviour, between one rural area of Poland and another. Beyond that, were it to prove possible to note differences, a further aim was to look for changes over the period since democracy was reinstated in public life and an economy given over to the market philosophy was created, and to indicate the dynamics and directions characteristic of any such change.
