USA rights ONLY. As Zamoyski set out to update The Polish Way, his bestselling first history of Poland, he realized the task required not so much re-writing as re-thinking the known facts as well as the assumptions of the past. The events of the last twenty years and the growth of the independent Polish state allowed him to look at Polands past with a fresh eye. Tracing Polands complex development from the Middle Ages to present day, Zamoyski examines the countrys political, economic, and military struggles, as well as its culture, art, and richly varied society through the ages, bringing the major events and characters in Polands history to life.
