The image of Poland has once again been impressed on European consciousness. Norman Davies begins with the period since 1945, and travels back in time to highlight themes and traditions that have influenced present attitudes. His evocative account reveals Poland as the heart of Europe in more than the geographical sense.

It is a country where Europe's idealogical conflicts are played out in their most acute form: as recent events have emphasized, Poland's fate is of vital concern to European civilisation as a whole. This revised and updated edition tackles and analyses the issues arising from the fall of the Eastern Block, and looks at Poland's future within a political climate of democracy and free market.
