Abstract : A spectacular change has taken place with regard to Poland's views on European security since the bloodless Polish revolution in 1989. These views evolved from an initial concept of maintaining the Cold War status quo, to a radical reorientation toward recognizing the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), a former adversary, as the basic architecture for future European security. This essay offers a brief review of Poland's unique historical experiences which lay the foundation for its current security policy. Additionally a critical analysis of Poland's evolving views for alternative concepts of European security architecture are provided.
