This book can be looted from one of the bookcases in Einar Gausel's shop in Flotsam. Reading this book provides a glossary entry entitled "Scoia'tael" in Geralt's journal.

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

Scoia'tael is a name used by the rebels fighting for nonhuman freedom. In the common tongue it means"squirrels". As some would have it, it is because of squirrel tails that adorn the rebels' caps, or from the forest board they had to survive on. Scoia'tael formed units over a score strong, consisting mainly of elves, yet sometimes dwarves and halflings joined too. During the last war against Nilfgaard, the Scoia'tael fought on the side of the Empire, making diversions and great damage beyond our lines. Despite the provisions of the Peace of Cintra, many did not disarm and continued to fight, especially when it turned out that Nilfgaard sacrificed them in the name of peace and gave the units' leaders to the Nordlings to be executed.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The title of this book is a play on Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies.
