Mit mocarstwowości w myśli politycznej II RP

  • Roman Kochnowski Uniwersytet Pedagogiczny w Krakowie


The term of superpower is ambiguous in politology. It is frequently defined as striving after
domination in either regional or global dimension. However, this term has rather an ironical meaning in connection with the 2nd Republic of Poland. Political leaders of the ruling camp
in Warsaw after 1926 had believed in imperial status of Poland (of 1936–1938), but this
conviction had disastrous consequences in 1939.
