"Frances Millard’s new book is destined to become an invaluable resource for all scholars of Polish politics in the years to come. Indeed, it should be required reading, not just for those who study Poland primarily, but for anyone who ever wants to include a Polish election in a cross-national analysis... I found myself wishing there was an equivalent volume for every other postcommunist country!" - Joshua A. Tucker, New York University, "Slavic Review," vol. 70, no.1 (Spring 2011)
"The book is certainly a definitive case study, but it is also useful for general studies of elections, party politics, and party systems. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections." - A. Siaroff, CHOICE (July 2010)
"Millard presents a fascinating and detailed analysis of the Polish political landscape from the first free parliamentary elections to developments in the Polish party system and its democratic processes... it will make definitive reading for political scientists with an interest in elections, party systems and Poland, but will also be of interest to non-specialists." - S. Guerra, Department of Politics, History and International Relations, Loughborough University; Slavonic and East European Review (vol. 90, no. 1, January 2012).
