    Listened to this audio book, which is more of a lecture on Poland and its history. It leads us to about 1980. Luckily time was relatively kind to the work, although some of the worst fake-accents are on parade here. The Stalin quotes and Polish poets’ words are delivered to you with ample gusto straight out of a school play from the Bible Belt. A nice short work on Poland’s history, nation building and people. The brevity of the work does not allow for in-depth pondering of any topic, but it does Listened to this audio book, which is more of a lecture on Poland and its history. It leads us to about 1980.

    Good, short overview of Poland's history and struggle. It was made in 1992, so it's doesn't cover anything in the last 30 years if you're looking for that. The people's accents sounded very forced and fake. And it got annoying pretty quickly, but at least it was a short book. Good, short overview of Poland's history and struggle.

    Poland is part of the The World's Political Hot Spots series. Almost the first half quickly reviews the history of Poland before 1900 and the last half reviews the twentieth century. Poland has dramatically changed in the last thirty years since this book was produced, thus it is very out-of-date. However, it provides a useful review. I appreciated that it included personal recollections, speeches and other writings which were narrated by a variety of people.

I listened to the audio version which is part of Audible's new free Plus catalog.

    I came to this book having an obscure view of Poland history (made and forced). The book confirmed some of my believes of Poland as the one great country of Europe that served as recipient of many of the political abuses of bigger European powers through its long history (Russia, Germany).

    Good concise history but needs to be updated to present time.
