The price of freedom : a history of East Central Europe from the Middle Ages to the present by Piotr S Wandycz( Book )

73 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this comparative, regional history of East Central Europe, Piotr Wandycz traces the turbulent history of Poland, Bohemia/Czechoslovakia and Hungary from their medieval origins to the post-Communist present. Contemporary events, the author argues, only become intelligible when viewed in their historical context. Each chapter focuses on a particular theme, raising questions and discussing existing controversies. Chronological tables at the end of the book serve as a guide to the sequence of events, and there is a comprehensive bibliography. Exploring such issues as the tension between the industrial, urbanizing West, and agrarian East Central Europe, problems of interrupted statehood, the impact of industrialization, the rise of modern nationalism, democracy and authoritarianism and Communism, the author concludes that the price of freedom has been high in this region, and never more so than today. This will be an invaluable text for historians and students of East European history and Soviet Studies
The lands of partitioned Poland, 1795-1918 by Piotr S Wandycz( Book )

35 editions published between 1974 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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)

The twilight of French eastern alliances, 1926-1936 : French-Czechoslovak-Polish relations from Locarno to the remilitarization of the Rhineland by Piotr S Wandycz( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although France, Poland, and Czechoslovakia were in jeopardy from a recovery of German power after World War I and from a potential German hegemony in Europe, France failed in her efforts to maintain a system of alliances with her two imperiled neighbors. Focusing on the period from 1926 to 1936, Piotr Wandycz seeks to explain how and why these three nations, with so much at risk, neglected to act in concert. Wandycz is the author of a well-known study on the series of alliances constructed by France, Poland, and Czechoslovakia in the years following the Treaty of Versailles. In this curren

La Pologne et l'Europe du partage à l'élargissement XVIIIe-XXIe siècles by Isabelle Davion( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depuis la disparition de la Pologne comme État indépendant à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, la " question polonaise " ne cesse de hanter l'Europe. Du Congrès de Vienne à la réunification allemande de 1989, des soulèvements tragiques du XIXe siècle à la tragédie des années 1940 et à la conférence de Potsdam qui redessine ses frontières, la Pologne aura été la mauvaise conscience de l'Europe contemporaine et n'aura jamais été traitée autrement que comme une variable d'ajustement, révélatrice de l'état et de la signification du système européen. L'entrée de la Pologne dans l'Union européenne nous a paru le moment opportun pour dresser un bilan des deux siècles passés, qui furent pour ce pays deux siècles dramatiques. Comme le lecteur pourra s'en rendre compte, les recherches sur ces questions ont connu un grand développement depuis quelques années : les thèses s'affinent, elles s'affirment aussi, parfois elles se heurtent, dans un aller-retour passionné entre le passé et le présent auquel l'Europe, après les bouleversements qu'elle a connus, n'échappe pas. Mais la Pologne n'a-t-elle pas toujours été une passion européenne?
