A great deal of information about Poland is presented here. The 180 maps cover 1000 years, since Poland adopted Western Christianity. Essays include a chronology, functioning of the Sejm (Parliament), and the prehistory and evolution of the Slavic languages group. However, poor cartography mars this diligent effort. Many of the maps are very busy, with complex shading variations and other symbols (such as tribal migrations) superimposed. Extraneous information, e.g., tribes in nearby regions, makes it difficult to pick out the important points. Most maps have insets summarizing events illustrated. The book appears to be offset printed with minimal editing. Not recommended. Marcia L. Sprules, Univ. of South Dakota Lib., Vermillion
