"A comprehensive treatment of American-Polish relations for the period....Pease's familiarity with the Polish language and archives is exemplary. He also writes very well."--The Historian
"An extremely valuable contribution to modern historiography. It completes the picture of American stabilization policy after the First World War, and it also provides a new and comprehensive account of American-Polish relations under two Republican administrations....Based on very rich sources from American, British, and Polish archives."--Business History Review
"There are many things to be learned, or relearned, from Pease's narrative....Pease's distinctive contribution here is his astute description of interwar central bank diplomacy."--Journal of Modern History
"A fascinating monograph....Depicting the perspectives of both Americans and Poles, Pease deftly captures the meaning and the flavour of their often frustrating relationship. The book is superbly researched, grounded in the archives of Poland and the United States; the author has also consulted British, German, and French sources as well as the published literature."--International History Review
"Pease has provided a well-crafted book that fills a major gap in scholarly literature....This well-written book should remain the definitive word on the subject for the foreseeable future."--Journal of American History
