Poland's Foreign Policy after 1989
This is the first monograph that examines Polish foreign policy since 1989. Author Roman Kuzniar focuses on the main challenges of the period in question - regaining sovereignty and establishing a solid foundation for Poland's security, as well as Poland's economic and civilizational development. The successes in these areas made Poland regain the freedom to operate in the international arena. Kuzniar combined a regular lecture on foreign policy with his critical commentary. As Kuzniar states, "This book is concerned with the real foreign policy, i.e. the one that Poland has actually been pursuing (the "positive" policy rather than the postulated one). What this is not, then, is a study of accompanying concepts, options, criticisms or debate. While always interesting and at times fascinating, these threads are only referred to intermittently here."
