W. Paszynski, The Incredible Poles, 2023.

My name is Wojciech Paszynski, I’m a scientist, writer, booklover and sportsman. My books include:
The Incredible PolesVandaliaSarmatians and Scholars
On a daily basis, I am a lecturer at AGH University in the field of the history of economic thought. I promote the knowledge about the achievements of Poles. I write about the phenomenon of Lechia (Lechism), Sarmatia (Sarmatism) and Vandalia (Vandalianism) in the Old Polish tradition (c. 1200-1795) and later references. After half a thousand years (since Krantz) I brought Vandalia back into scientific discourse and coined the term Vandalianism to describe the Vandal phenomenon. The list of my publications can be found in the Books tab in the menu above. I also encourage you to support my portal (III Millenium) and scientific research. This can be done by PayPal or by making a traditional transfer (bank account number: 60 1870 1045 2078 1061 9422 0002).
