Regional Histories and Historical Regions

The Concept of the Baltic Sea Region in Polish and Swedish Historiographies


Marta Grzechnik

This book takes as its point of departure an enthusiasm for Baltic Sea region history which appeared in some European countries after the fall of the Iron Curtain. In search for the historiographical traditions and earlier concepts which the post-Cold War concept of the Baltic Sea region is based on, it reaches back to the interwar period. The book’s comparative dimension, as well as emphasis on the relation between historical narratives and political debates, make it an interesting contribution to Baltic Sea region studies, as well as Scandinavian and Central European historical and historiographical studies.
