Very Good in Good jacket. Endpaper a little darkened where a newspaper article was laid in.; Index. Notes. Illustrations. Map endpapers. A sweeping history of Poland between the two World Wars.; 1.9 x 9.5 x 6.2 Inches; 511 pages.
A very good book by Mr. Watt, it tells the tragic story of independent Poland from its recreation after WWI to its last partition at the beginning of WWII. A rather readable history book, its portrays the chaos of 1920's politics and the evolution into an authoritarian and quite antisemitic regime after Pilsudsky's putsch of 1926.
Relevant to understand the relationship between Christians and Jews in Poland, its political evolution, its attitude towards its neighbours (specially the Soviet Union and Germany), its very narrow choices of allies and its final demise at the hands of the invading armies. Interesting to understand even some present day events.
