ItemFenomen „Gazety Wyborczej”(Wydawnictwo Naukowe WNPiD UAM w Poznaniu, 2003) Madera, Andrzej JózefSince the first issue of „Gazeta Wyborcza” was published, on Monday 8 th May 1989, it has become a true phenomenon on the Polish press market. After two months from the first publication it became very popular due to the slogan created by A. Michnik „your President – our Prime Minister”. „Gazeta Wyborcza” as the first newspaper published in democratic Poland became more than the biggest source of information as it also had a great influence on shaping of the political opinions of many Poles. It also supported the „Solidarity” movement and the new government. „Gazeta Wyborcza” was the first newspaper in democratic Poland whereone could find uncensored articles addressed to people, respecting their expectations and the right to information free from censorship. There is no doubt that „Gazeta Wyborcza” created by Adam Michnik, editor-in-chief, has currently got as many readers as critics but it is impossible to remain unaffected by its content. ItemPolityczna funkcja muzyki. Antyteza estetyki autonomii dzieła muzycznego(Wydawnictwo Naukowe WNPiD UAM w Poznaniu, 2003) Massaka, IwonaThis paper contains – in the historical context – the analysis of musical forms as an efficacious and sufficiently universal means of acting, governing, assembling and putting under discipline different societies (including nations) that are considered as a unity, as well as respective society groups. Here, music is considered both as a domain accompanying political phenomena as well as phenomena that are par excellence political. It is treated as an ideological instrument used by exponents of any ideology, who apply it not only for decorative purposes but first of all for the purpose of inciting the instinct of massive solidarity, enthusiasm, unanimous will and belief. The presentation is a polemic on the belief that prevails in the research on musicology that musical production is autonomous and it is considered exclusively as an act of free expression. ItemStosunki między państwem i biznesem a wzrost gospodarki(Wydawnictwo Naukowe WNPiD UAM w Poznaniu, 2003) Ząbkowicz, AnnaThe article presents an approach to government-business relations which differs from a conventional perspective. The main stream of political science as well as the mainstream economics agree that business should be separated from the government. The article reveals that the concept of „business” is not homogenous and, according analyzes its five aspects. It shows the conditions under w hich collaboration between the government officials and businessmen needs not be harmful for economic growth, and may be even conducive to it. Examples in the article show that cooperation between government and business may be more beneficial than building barriers between them. ItemSystem prasowy Chorwacji(Wydawnictwo Naukowe WNPiD UAM w Poznaniu, 2003) Sobczak, WitoldThe press system in Croatia is among the youngest media systems in Europe. It is based on relatively peculiar constitutional provisions that make the right to rectification a principle. The Croatian system meets the requirements of a press system posed by the European Union and Community regulations. It comprises detailed provisions concerning the freedom of press, the principles of registration of press activity, the rights and obligations of journalists, rectifications and replies. ItemWokół problemu definicji mniejszości narodowych(Wydawnictwo Naukowe WNPiD UAM w Poznaniu, 2003) Sobczak, JacekThe problem of national minorities appears to be quite a controversial issue. This is so because it is considered by lawyers, sociologists, culture researchers, historians and political scientists. It is not a trivial matter in the controversies caused by this problem that it is related to a particularly sensitive political area that in political practice generates immense problems and brings about conflicts. The paper attempts to group the definitions developed by sociology and political science and to demonstrate the most controversial elements. The problem of national minorities is related to the notions of nation, nationality, ethnic minority and ethnographic minority. The main emphasis falls on the legal approach as the attempts at developing a legal definition (i.e. the definition stipulated by the act of law) are traced while acknowledging that such a definition has not been developed although numerous acts of international law concern the issues of minorities ItemРегион как единица стабильности в (гео)политике XXI века(Wydawnictwo Naukowe WNPiD UAM w Poznaniu, 2003) Zadorożniuk, EllaInternal identity of a region is a factor that promotes political stability. Western Europe is a particular example here. The significance of regions, which is clearly emphasised in Europe, may become a prerequisite for their mutual assimilation. This causes numerous problems but also contributes to increased interdependence between nations and regions. The potential of regional identity may be treated as a factor that reduces the consequences of the revival of national or nationalistic tendencies on the one hand, and those of intensified globalisation on the other. A decade of contradictory experience in the formation of regional identity in Central Europe confirms this hypothesis. The emergence of clear regional structures as well the reinforcement of a new regiona identity of Central European countries in politics and then in economics may diminish the level of various hazards ranging from political ones to environmental.
