he webinar features a distinguished academic - Professor Robert Frost, who will analyze the governing systems of the vast multi-ethnic, multi-religious, and multi-cultural Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. He will examine the underlying political philosophy of that Polish-Lithuanian Union, demonstrating how it functioned for 200 years. Professor Frost posits that if one understands the underlying laws and philosophy, the Union was by no means as dysfunctional as is usually suggested.

The talk will be based on the second volume of the three-volume history of Poland and Lithuania written by Prof. Frost and published by Oxford University Press. The first volume is out, the second one is to be released later this year.

We recommend that you get the first volume of the Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania: The Making of the Polish-Lithuanian Union, 1385-1569 available on Amazon and elsewhere. The lecture will be based on the new materials for the forthcoming Second Volume of that History.
