Reviews

“This is a well-written, well-constructed and important book … written by an author who is a trained and experienced social scientist and who has a thorough knowledge of the field and the area about which he is writing.” • Zdzisław Mach, Jagiellonian University in Kraków

Description

Studying the German-Polish ethnic relations, this book analyses the people and region through their respective borderlands, migration, official cooperation and unofficial suspicions across the border. The main conclusion is that, while officialdom is generally keen to develop cross-border ties, which ordinary people do take advantage of, the latter tend to be much more sceptical of the potential impact to their lives in what remains an economically depressed area despite cross-border cooperation having been possible for several decades.

Robert Parkin was a Departmental Lecturer in social anthropology in the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, University of Oxford from 2002 to 2017.
