Editorial Reviews

"Because no analagous systematic synthesis of materials exists for any Polish city, this work will undoubtedly be of great service to anyone intersted in the economic history of Poland. It is clearly the product of herculean labors and for this the author deserves great praise." Gershon Hundert, American Historical Review
