Metamorfozy Imperium Rosyjskiego 1721-1921

Andrzej Nowak

Andrzej Nowak is known for his insight and dauntlessness in seeking historical truth. As an unchallenged expert in Eastern studies, he proved on more than one occasion in his early books that the history of Eastern Europe still holds many mysteries and unsolved questions. An Through his erudition and in-depth research we can now better understand how the Russian Empire operates – from the time of the Tsars up till Vladimir Putin. This time, however, he is chiefly focused on Poland, raising questions on the political and cultural identity of his homeland in the twenty-first century. This volume collecting his essays and conversations he has held with many outstanding Polish historians and intellectuals breaks the basic and seemingly obvious concepts down to their lowest denominators. Through this intellectual vivisection, conducted with finesse and verve, we can see the recent history of Poland and Europe in an utterly new light. Professor Nowak’s book is undoubtedly compulsory reading for anyone trying to understand the present political situation in Poland, and wanting a better understanding of the mechanisms that govern History.
