About the Author

GEORGE J.

An active member of the Polish Resistance, he was a cofounder of the Polish Freedom Movement Independence and Democracy, and in 1993 was posthumously bestowed the Polonia Restituta with Commander's Cross and Star, one of Poland's highest honors.

Reviews

"In many years of teaching Polish history, I have always been struck by the lack of information, and sometimes by the misinformation that can be found on Polish history in standard reference works. This is remedied at last in the Historical Dictionary. Its high standard will serve as a model for future reference works on Polish history."-Anna M. Cienciala, Professor of History University of Kansas
"There is a particular need for a basic reference work on Polish history in the English language. Professor Lerski's Historical Dictionary of Poland will satisfy this need for many years to come."- Maciej Siekierski, Ph.D., curator Hoover Institution, Stanford University
