The second edition of this guide to Poland has been updated to take account of the years from 1989-2005. This period marked its liberation from the Soviet Union, the birth of Poland's 'Third Republic' and, recently, its accession to the European Union in 2004. Poland's history has been marked by its resilience. Once a dominant force in central and eastern Europe and home to a remarkable experiment in consensual politics, it was excised from the map by its neighbours in 1795. Resurrected in 1918, partitioned afresh during the Second World War, it survived to become a satellite of the Soviet Union. Yet in the 1980s, it was Poland which blazed the trail in casting off communism, and was finally able to reassert its Christian heritage. With its updated bibliography and new chronology, the book is the ideal companion for all looking for a comprehensive survey of this fascinating country.

'... the best short guide to Polish history currently available in English.' English Historical Review

'... the best short guide to Polish history currently available in English.' Robert I. Frost, King's College London, Oxford Academic Journals

'... two chapters, on the partitions era to 1918, are excellent ... a judicious balance of pertinent information and lucid, thoughtful analysis.' History

''Jerzy Lukowski and Hubert Zawadzki's joint contribution to the Cambridge Concise Histories series was enthusiastically received by most reviewers following its initial publication in 2001 ... In their contrasting styles, both authors are masters of the English language; Lukowski exhibits mordancy, Zawadzki equipoise ...Authoritative and lucid, A Concise History of Poland has become by some margin the best one-volume history of Poland available in any language.'
