Poland: A History
"Fresh, different and brilliantly readable. It is the perfect introduction for those who know nothing about the country, yet will also provide some positive food for thought to those who imagined they knew it all too well."
--Anne Applebaum, The Spectator
"A dramatic history of Poland that captures the spirit of its people. Such an extraordinary national trajectory demands an accessible and scholarly accounting. Zamoyski succeeds admirably in providing both."
--Harry de Quetteville, Daily Telegraph
