The Polish Way: A Thousand-Year History of the Poles and Their Culture

By Zamoyski, Adam

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Franklin Watts, 1988. This book charts the course of Polish history, emphasizing those political events with repercusions beyond the country itself, and tracing the evolution of Polish society, its mentality, outlook, and behavior; it devotes a larger than usual proportion of the book to the period 1400 to 1800, when Poles were in a position to shape their own destiny; includes many black & white and color illustrations; the author, a descendant of Polish nobility, was born in New York City but raised and educated in England (dark red cloth with gold lettering, corners very slightly bumped; otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy; this is a large, heavy volume that can only be shipped by domestic media mail without addtional shipping charge). Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket.
