Political Science Professor Quoted in Pope’s Obituary

David Ost, professor of political science, was quoted in an obituary of the Pope that appeared in the Houston Chronicle on April 3. Ost was quoted talking about the political influence of the Pope in Poland, saying that while he certainly made Poles feel more confident during the communist era, efforts to paint him as the eminence grise behind the Solidarity movement are widely off the mark.

Ost has lived extensively in Poland and written widely on Polish politics.
