Postal Indiscretions; The Correspondance of Tadeusz Borowski
Postal Indiscretions; The Correspondance of Tadeusz Borowski
translated by Alicia Nitecki, edited by Tadeusz Drewnowski
Northwestern University Press

This eloquent witness to the Holocaust embraced Communism as the only bulwark against the bestiality he had seen. His correspondence gives a vivid picture of a totalitarian world and the stain it left upon the short life of this gifted writer. If Elie Wiesel was the great mystic of the Holocaust and Primo Levi was its great analyst, Borowski was its angry young man. – Ruth Franklin, The New Republic Online

The Peasant Prince: Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the Age of Revolution
The Peasant Prince: Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the Age of Revolution
by Alex Storozynski
St. Martin's Press / Thomas Dunne Books, April 2009

…an objective history that is needed in today’s America and Poland. The hero … is one of the fathers of modern democracy in the same mold as Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Lincoln. – Adam Michnik, Solidarnosc activist and editor in chief of Gazeta Wyborcza

…a sweeping, colorful, and absorbing biography that should restore Kosciuszko to his proper place in history
– Andrew Nagorski, Newsweek

Readers of military and American history should take note: the minute details will enthrall devotees. Casual readers will benefit from Storozynski's expert crafting of a readable and fact-filled story that pulls readers into the immediacy of the revolutionary era's partisan and financial troubles.
– Publishers Weekly

In a meticulously researched work, Storozynski greatly enhances our understanding of Kosciuszko’s personality and motivations by investigating the Pole’s relationship and feelings toward Africans, Jews, and peasants. His contribution advances our knowledge of this complex character whom Jefferson considered the ‘purest son of liberty’ he ever knew. – James Pula, Purdue University

…a testament to a great man and an important addition to world history. – Byron E. Price, Texas Southern University

Does Ethics Have a Chance in a World of Consumers?
Does Ethics Have a Chance in a World of Consumers?
by Zygmunt Bauman
Harvard University Press, May 2008

Gracefully, provocatively, Bauman urges us to think in new ways about a newly flexible, newly challenging modern world. As Bauman notes, quoting Vaclav Havel, “hope is not a prognostication.” It is, rather, alongside courage and will, a mundane, common weapon that is too seldom used.
