Professor Wandycz shows a remarkable balance in his excursion into history and international politics. He treats the relationship from both sides and is well aware that American attention or inattention to "the Polish question" must be seen against the background of relations among the Great Powers. While the book is written for the general reader, the appended bibliographical essay indicates the thorough scholarship that underlies it. The best work yet on the subject.
