Prof. Michał Markowski's recent book Wojny nowoczesnych plemion. Spór o rzeczywistość w epoce populizmu [Wars of Modern Tribes. Arguing about Reality in the Times of Populism] (2019, Karakter) was named by acclaimed Polish weekly "Polityka" to its list of 20 books published in the past year in Polish language (original books as well as translations) that "you must know to understand the contemporary world." Prof. Markowski's book joins those of authors like James Baldwin, Harold Bloom, Rebecca Solnit, Mark Fisher, and others.
