Description

A timely explanation of change in the newly democratic Poland. Contributors include leading Polish and American scholars, two U.S. ambassadors to Poland, Lech Walesa's principal assistants and the leading U.S. scholar on Poland. Walter Osiatynski compares the American and Polish constitutions; Lech Falandysz traces the path from communist legality to the rule of law in Poland while Janusz Onyszkiewicz looks at the transition from totalitarianism to democracy. Taking on the presidency and politics in Poland, Leszek Garlicki asks if it is the wrong institutions or the wrong persons and Eugenuisz Piontek discusses challenges of the 1990s. Turning to Poland and American foreign policy, the U.S. Ambassador John R. Davis, Jr. looks at prospects for the future and Ambassador Richard T. Davies interprets changes in Poland and Eastern Europe. Andzej Korbonski provides the summing up with a look at changes overall in Eastern Europe. Co-published with the Miller Center of Public Affairs.
