Heart of Europe
A Short History of PolandBook - 1986
In this evocative account, Norman Davies provides a key to understanding the social and political inheritance of modern Poland. Beginning with Solidarity and the immediate concerns of the period since 1945, Davies works backward through time to highlight the themes and traditions of the past which are still alive in the present. Davies shows that Poland is the heart of Europe in more than just the geographical sense--it is a country whose fate is a matter of vital concern to European civilization as a whole.
