Contributions are drawn from many disciplines- history, politics, religious studies, literature, linguistics, sociology, art, and architecture-and from a wide variety of viewpoints.

'Perhaps the only scholarly publication devoted entirely to Polish–Jewish history. Readers are struck by the sheer weight of scholarship and by the quality of historical research represented… they will be struck even more by the freshness of approach many of the authors apply... It is already becoming, and fast, a weighty, ineradicable presence in the continuing Polish–Jewish history, as well as in the on-going social-scientific effort to comprehend the changing world in which we live.'

Zygmunt Bauman, Jewish Quarterly

'Performs a very valuable function as a forum in which both sides—Polish and Jewish—can discuss their views. That such a forum is needed is evident from the distance which remains between Jewish and Polish perceptions of their common history.'

Steven Beller, Times Higher Education Supplement
