It deals with a variety of subjects: country-related articles (
Poland, Russiaand Ukrainebeing most prominent), the post-Sovietperiod, the American and European ethnicissues and matters related mass media, higher education, literature, government, religionand politics. It contains articles, reviewand sometimes literature samples ( poetry).
The name of the publications comes from
Sarmatia, a semi-legendary name for the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a multi-cultural state that spanned most of Eastern Europe from 16th to 18th centuries.
The goal of this publication, as stated at [http://ejournal.coalliance.org/fullrec.cfm?EJID=1850] is: "The Sarmatian Review was conceived by a group of American Polish scholars who observed a dearth of scholarly journals that would allow the
Polish-Americanpoints of view to be heard. Polish-Americans, and other Americans of Central European ancestry, will be able to speak for themselves in a scholarly publication that reflects Central European and Polish-American identity."
