A short introduction is designed to fix in the newcomer's mind the main events and currents of Poland's historical and cultural Odyssey. The glossary, list of rulers and genealogical tables provide indispensable points of reference, and a set of maps and plans makes it easy to locate the sites. Any traveller armed with this book can be certain that they will not pass by any gems, however well hidden. And anyone interested in the culture of Poland and Central Europe will find it an invaluable reference work.
