Summary/Abstract: This paper describes the political circumstances of the renewal of Polish sociology after its banishement during the the Stalinist regime (1949-1955). Between 1956 and 1961 the sociological community was fragmented, as a result of the ruling communist party’s insistance that all sociology should be marxist and used as a tool of ideological indoctrination and propaganda. Founded in 1961 Studia Socjologiczne opened up an opportunity for the integration of the sociological community. This was possible as a result of a compromise between the marxisits and sociologists representing other theoretical viewpoints. As a result, Studia Socjologiczne managed to present a number of sociological perspectives — this was unique amongst countries under the Soviet influence. The latter part of the paper describes the status and role of the journal between 1961-2011.
