On Civilization's Edge

A Polish Borderland in the Interwar World

Kathryn Ciancia

  • The first English-language study of the ways in which conceptions of the interwar Polish nation were shaped by on-the-ground interactions in the eastern borderlands
  • Draws on local and national archives across four countries
  • Offers a new model of the blurred boundaries between empires and nation-states
  • Contextualizes the current political moment in Poland, where the legacies of interwar nationalism, the Holocaust, and Polish-Ukrainian relations still polarize the nation.
