Neighbors, by Jan T. Gross

Reviewed by Marek Jan Chodakiewicz

When faced with serious criticism of his book, Gross and his supporters resorted to the argument that the book’s main contribution lay in its “shock value.” The readers should disregard the (numerous) shortcomings, they asserted. What mattered was the therapeutic shock capable of reshaping the Poles’ self-image and, by extension, their identity. In the enclosed essay, Prof. Chodakiewicz addresses the grave flaws of the author’s consequentialist, purely agenda-driven approach.
