comment How did the Soviets decide what to annex in WW2?
Regarding the second part, it is very unusual for Poles to beg to be incorporated into a state involving Russians when that state was widely recognised to be dominated by Russians. It shows the breadth of Stalinist type party opinion. Regarding the first, this is of course unfortunate, a fulsome archival history is what the archives themselves cry out for (at least these organisations made, kept and preserved their archives and will in time be known for exactly what they were).

comment How did the Soviets decide what to annex in WW2?
Almost everything, given the CPSU(b) and the Soviet Union itself kept meticulous archival records of high committee discussions, and were document producing organisations. We know, for example, that there was internal debate within the Polish party over incorporation into the Soviet Union. You'd be looking for post-archival monographs and journal articles on the topic.

comment Is the position of women as portrayed in the Mad Men series historically accurate?
Depends on the quality of the viewer's reading. It isn't a straight forward or unproblematic text.
