Wybór(Choice)

ENGLISH INTRODUCTION
In our turbulent times, we cannot predict what tomorrow will look like. But we know that tomorrow depends on what all of us do today. That is why we have no right to be pessimistic. This is the main argument made by Anne Applebaum and Donald Tusk in this book, a collection of conversations about the most important choices facing Poland, Europe and the world.

POLISH INTRODUCTION
W naszych burzliwych czasach nie jesteśmy w stanie przewidzieć, jak będzie wyglądało jutro. Lecz wiemy, że jutro zależy od tego, co zrobimy dzisiaj, teraz. Dlatego nie mamy prawa do pesymizmu – mówią Anne Applebaum i Donald Tusk w swoich rozmowach o najważniejszych wyborach, przed jakimi stoją Polska, Europa i świat.

In our turbulent times, we cannot predict what tomorrow will look like. But we know that tomorrow depends on what all of us do today. That is why we have no right to be pessimistic. This is the main argument made by Anne Applebaum and Donald Tusk in this book, a collection of conversations about the most important choices facing Poland, Europe and the world.

In twelve conversations, Applebaum and Tusk delve into a series of difficult questions: 
Why is the European Union, one of the world's greatest economic powers, so weak on the world stage? Why have so many democratically elected leaders headed down an authoritarian path? How did our countries divide into tribes, and can the gaps between people be healed? How can we make sure that "decency" does not become the equivalent of helplessness and "xenophobia" does not become a synonym for effectiveness in the face of a migration crisis that will only grow?  Can we win the idea of patriotism back from the nationalists? Why does Russia want to divide Europe? Will China win the digital battle for world dominance? How are democrats going to win elections again - not just in America? Applebaum and Tusk search for answers, cominbing their analysis with stories and anecdotes about Joe Biden, Viktor Orban, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Vladimir Putin, Jarosław Kaczyński.

These unique conversations reflect two very different perspectives, that of an outstanding journalist and author of history books, and that of a seasoned practitioner who has to put political ideas into practice.
