History of Poland

A Concise Outline


Jack J. Kanski presents concise, illustrated histories covering a range of historical periods and providing readers with key information about events and people that have shaped the history of the world. In History of Poland, Kanski offers readers key information on the background, biography and legacies of significant figures. The book also contains information regarding key historical and military events and explore how individuals helped to shape the outcome of these conflicts. Using a didactic, bullet-point format and accompanied by many colour illustrations, including paintings and maps, Kanski’s A Concise Outline series enables readers to quickly and easily absorb key information about some of the world’s most famous historical individuals and events. The books are not designed for historians, but rather will appeal to the general reader searching for concise and informative history books.

I've studied quite a bit of history over my years both in and out of school, but rarely have I come across much Polish history. When I saw this title, I knew that it was one that I would love to pick up as an introduction to Polish history. I had no idea how complicated Polish history was, but this book made it so understandable and truly enjoyable to read. I love the bullet-point format and overall functionality of this book. I will absolutely be re-reading this one and using it as a guide for any topic that I might want to go more in-depth about. Thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for granting me access to this fantastic book!

Excellent overview of Polish history that concentrates on just the facts. The book is in outline form and has numerous illustrations.

It's a good overview for those wanting to review this subject as well as a good introduction to the topic.

by Janet Perry

A very good entry level exploration of a very complicated topic. It would be a great first step in exploring the varied avenues of Polish History. You will need a follow up after this to paint a full picture.
