Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: In Classrooms and Barrooms, David J. Jackson recounts his experiences during a semester-long Fulbright Fellowship in Poland where he taught classes at the university level and learned more about Poland and himself than he expected. From the trepidation associated with learning he was assigned to teach in a city considered by most to be an unpleasant wasteland to meeting American and Polish colleagues for the first time, Jackson's worries vanished as he quickly learned to accept the challenges Poland presented. Halfway through his time in Poland he stumbled into a bar populated with an ever-changing cast of eccentric locals who welcomed him into their world. Each visit led him to another revelation about Polish history and culture. Alternating among hilarious, somber, and uplifting, Jackson's experiences in the classrooms and barrooms of Poland aim both to inform and entertain.
