Overview

At a time when Poland is emphasizing its distance from Russia, Polish
Encounters, Russian Identity points to the historical ties and mutual influences of
these two great Slavic peoples. Whether Poland adopted a hostile or a friendly
stance toward Russia, the intense responses of Russian thinkers, writers, and
political leaders to Poland and to Polish culture shaped Russians' idea of
themselves and their place in the world. Countering the recent trend to deny the
rich interactions between Russia and Poland, this collection reminds readers that
these longstanding, if often difficult, contacts constitute an important and
enduring element in the consciousness of the peoples of both
countries.
