Cardinal Wyszynski: A Biography
Cardinal Wyszynski: A Biography
By Andrzej Micewski
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1984, 496 pp.

This first full biography of Wyszynski by a Polish journalist is a hymn to his greatness as churchman and statesman, and at the same time a remarkably full account of his life and thought. In many ways the story of his dealings with the Communist regime and of his resistance to it on matters of principle reveal the essence of his country's dilemma, and its survival, over his more than three decades as primate of Poland.
