At a time when new minorities are finding a home in Poland, Polands Diverse Peoples: A Reference Handbook brings to light the nations dramatic, conflict-ridden, multiethnic past. The book explains the unique confluence of politics, culture, and demographics that defined Poland from the daring establishment of the Polish Commonwealth, through the 18th century partitioning that wiped the word Poland off the map.It then follows Polands various ethnicities through a nightmarish 20th century of internal tensions, Hitler and the Holocaust, Soviet domination, and ultimately the collapse of Communism.

It is an evocative introduction to a nation that invented, then wrestled with its own identity, endured the worst of wars, invaders, and tyrants, and served as a seedbed for contemporary nations from Ukraine to Israel.
