Within the boundaries of the strict conformity that characterized the regimes of Eastern Europe following Yugoslavia's expulsion from the Cominform in 1948, the Hungarian experiment in forced collectivization represents an opposite extreme to the Polish approach. While Polish policy makers implemented the policy cautiously and with noticeable reluctance, Hungarian leaders were anxious to replicate Soviet experience within their borders. Economic sanctions and physical coercion were both more pervasive in the latter nation and the rate of collectivization was considerably higher.
