Located between the former Soviet Union and eastern Germany, Poland has the potential to become a political and economic bridge between the East and West. It is crucial to European security and stabilization; yet the list of reference books on recent Polish history is very short. This book fills that gap, providing information on Polish political, economic, and cultural history since 1945.
'As a reliable guide to Poland's history over the 50 years since the end of the Second World War, this Dictionary undoubtedly fills a gap in Eastern European studies.' Reference Reviews 'Highly recommended for public and academic libraries with Central/Eastern European collections.' Library Journal
