A Traveller's History of Poland

A Traveller's History of Poland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poland is a major European country with over 38 million inhabitants and a land area comparable to Spain. It has played a major role in European history, but its subjugation by foreign powers in the nineteenth century and during the Cold War eclipsed Poland in the minds of many in Western Europe and the United States. Throughout its long and diverse history it has been a meeting place of many cultures and has given the world the poetry of Czeslaw Milosz, the music of Chopin, and the scientific discoveries of Copernicus and Marie Curie, to name but a few.
