Product Description

Shoulder to Shoulder presents the history of Polish immigrants and their descendants in Rochester, New York, beginning with the arrival of the first Polish settlers at the end of the 19th century and continuing through the present. The result of extensive research carried out over a period of ten years, the book documents the development of Rochester's Polish community in the context of events that have also shaped the larger history of American Polonia.

First published in 1991, Shoulder to Shoulder has now been issued in a new edition that brings Rochester Polonia's history up to date. The 300-page, hard cover volume contains more than 140 photographs, maps, and original sketches. Its front cover, printed in full color, features a collage of memorabilia suggesting the rich expanse of the Polish community's story. On the back are two additional photographs: one showing Pope John Paul II receiving a copy of the first edition of the book at the Vatican in 1992, the other showing Lech Walesa being presented with a copy while in Rochester in 1998.

Shoulder to Shoulder has been distributed widely, reaching not only Rochesterians of Polish descent but also their relatives across the US, in Canada and in Poland, students and scholars of ethnic studies, Polish American organizations, genealogical societies, archives, libraries, and historical associations.

Publication of the new edition of Shoulder to Shoulder was made possible with grants from the Polish Heritage Society of Rochester and the Louis Skalny Foundation, with additional support from the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester.
