Sverige, Polen och den nya politiska ordningen vid östersjön efter första världskriget

Gerner, Kristian LU (2005) In Polen & Sverige 1919-1999
Abstract
Poland's entry into Baltic politics in 1918 was a challenge to traditional Swedish foreign policy. Both Germany and Russia had been significantly weakened because of the Great War and Sweden had to find a new role in the face of the successor states, among them Poland. An analysis of contemporary diplomatic reports and travellers' reports shows that Swedish politicians and diplomats did not consider the resurrected Polish state as part of a Baltic community but rather as belonging to Central Europe, and that Swedish writers described Poland as exotic and strange according to the logic of "orientalism".
