The scholarly editor of the book is S. Kul-Selvestrova, Ph.D., professor at the Grodno Yanka Kupala State University, who also authored the introduction and commentaries. The commission for documents selection and arrangement was headed by A. Kisel, director at the State Archives of Grodno Region.

In all, the book includes 40 documents which have been published for the first time. Many of them were originally secret but now declassified. The documents are arranged in chronological order from 1945 to 2004 and in the original language without any literary and other corrections. These contain lots of information about the history of the Augustow Canal and the adjacent localities, the work of the starch plant and agricultural factories in the former Sapotkin District, the names of the frontier posts, the damage inflicted by the Nazis in the Second World War, the restoration of the economics and organisation of the cultural public events within the Augustow Canal in the Culture of Three Nations progamme.
