Product Description

Review

`Review from previous edition Anyone who wants to understand what has happened in Poland must dig into Norman Davies's great opencast mine of Polish history...it is very accessible, strewn with vivid quotations from original sources, good ancedotes, and much verse...' Sunday Times

`The magnificence of God's Playground is that Norman Davies has given us the music as well as the libretto, the passion, poetry, myth, and anecdote as well as the facts... Davies writes with spirit, and his enjoyment is infectious. ' Observer

`A yawning gap in Anglophone historical literature has now been filled...Dr Davies writes interestingly and well. His moods vary between cool detachement, passionate involvement, and ironic comment. His range of sources is wide and imaginative...a very substantial achievement.' Times Literary Supplement

From the Publisher

8pp halftone plates, numerous maps and figures
