Niełatwe związki – relacje polityczne między państwem pochodzenia a diasporą


Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, Warszawa, s 354


The author explores the topic of relations between the state of origin and the diaspora from the perspective of theories and concepts used in political science: political subjectivity, power relations, influence, mobilization and functioning of the political system. The monograph fills a considerable gap in the research on Polish emigration (so far dominated by the historical and sociological approach) by supplementing the analysis of the phenomenon of diaspora communities and their relations with the state of origin with the perspective of political science.
