The Clash of Moral Nations · Cultural Politics in Piłsudski’s Poland, 1926–1935
By Eva Plach

The Clash of Moral Nations is a study of the political culture of interwar Poland, as reflected in and by the May 1926 coup and the following period of “sanacja.” It tracks the diverse appropriations and manipulations of that concept, introducing an important cultural and gendered dimension to understandings of national and political identity in interwar Poland.

“Plach does an excellent job of convincing the reader that her select examples are valuable and insightful. This makes the book—an enlightening look at interwar Poland’s cultural politics—well worth reading by a broad audience.”
