Mr. Zamoyski believes there is a need for a new synthesis of Poland's past because of the heavily nationalist and political coloring of existing works. He strives to place Polish history more squarely in its European context, and he pays special attention to developments that had repercussions beyond the boundaries of the country.

I rather enjoyed this book: its written clearly, with verve (but never gets carried away), and it doesn't skew or over-emphasize certain times, places, or events excessively; its broad-minded and humane and doesn't glamorize a particular ethnic group, nor does it demonize - none of this means that the author doesn't exercise judgement, he does, and its reasonable. There is a bit of a hurriedness to the prose, especially in the last third of the book. Most importantly, it related the history such that one is interested enough to learn more of it.
