The Lands of Partitioned Poland, 1795-1918

The Lands of Partitioned Poland, 1795-1918 comprehensively covers an important, complex, and controversial period in the history of Poland and East Central Europe, beginning in 1795 when the remnanst of the Polish Commonwealth were distributed among Prussia, Austria, and Russia, and culminating in 1918 with the re-establishment of an independent Polish state. Until this thorough and authoritative study, literature on the subject in English has been limited to a few chapters in multiauthored works.

Chronologically, Wandycz traces the histories of the lands under Prussian, Austrian, and Russian rule, pointing out their divergent evolution as well as the threads that bound them together. The result is a balanced, comprehensive picture of the social, political, economic, and cultural developments of all nationalities inhabiting the land of the old commonwealth, rather than a limited history of one state (Poland) and one people (the Poles).

Reviews

"A much needed work. It will be eagerly read not only by scholars and laymen interested in the struggle of several generations of Poles for the restoration of their national state, but also by others who are dedicated to the liberation of small peoples from the tyranny of modern empires."—History

"Professor Wandycz has provided an important tool for the student beginning the comparative study of East Central Europe and a valuable reference work for both the Polish and non-Polish specialist. His work will facilitate and stimulate the study of East Central Europe."—Slavic Review

"This is a splendid study, certainly the best one-volume work on the period."—Polish Heritage
