Poles love him. Worldwide he is far less respected and his approach to history is why he wasn't able to gain tenure at Stanford. He took Stanford to court about that "discrimination" and promptly saw the case tossed straight out by both the court of first instance and the appeals court.
Second that. The main critisism towards Norman Davies is that he is one-sided, biased and, like sobieski said, he "forgets" things. He seems to write solely from a Polish perspective in that sense that it merely adds up to the glorification of Poland. If you want an objective view on Polish history, Norman Davies is not the historian you'd be looking for.
Wow you should really become a Propaganda minister or something. I bet you would have been one of Goebbels favourite student ;)
This is uncalled for. Harry merely writes down the main opinion of Davies within historian's circles. I know you can't stand any critisism, but you went a bit overboard there.
M-G (likes the Moorhouse suggestion)
