Wonderfully detailed.this book fills a major gap on the history of Poland during this period, through the writings of Hugh S. Gibson. He acts as an excellent case study for understanding the diplomatic discussions that were taking place behind the scenes as Poland geared to establish itself on the global stage. * HISTORY *
[An American in Warsaw] gives us a valuable self-portrait of a noteworthy American diplomat and, through his eyes and with his witty and lively pen, a revealing picture of Poland in the early years of its restored statehood. * H-NET *
Hugh Gibson served as US Minister to Poland at a critical time in Polish and European history, as the reconstituted Polish state sought to establish and secure its governing structures, independence, and borders against formidable odds in the chaotic years that followed in the wake of the First World War. Gibson's writings from this period, skillfully edited and annotated by Vivian Reed, provide the engaging perspective of a well-informed outsider whose understanding of Poland's geopolitical dilemma was based on thoughtful and objective analysis. -- -- Robert Blobaum, author of A Minor Apocalypse: Warsaw during the First World War
