This chapter describes Włodzimierz Mich's book Obcy w polskim domu: nacjonalistyczne koncepcje rozwiązania problem mniejszości narodowych 1918–1939 (1994). As is the case with works of a pioneering approach, it raises important issues rather than giving a comprehensive study of the subject. Its main aim is to present some general theses on the impact of the Endecja's thought on the broader political spectrum, with respect to the question of ethnic minorities. The comparative analytical approach employed by Mich enables him to make an important summary of integral nationalist tendencies in inter-war Poland. He has two main theses. First, Polish nationalist thought, as defined by the Endecja camp, shaped to a greater extent than previously allowed the ideologies and programmes of different political groupings, including those that did not identify themselves as primarily national or nationalistic. Moreover, the only significant difference among the various political camps was that of tactics rather than ideology, as far as the treatment of ethnic minorities was concerned. Second, the predominant policies towards ethnic minorities were threefold: assimilation into the Polish nation, advocated in the case of Slavic minorities; marginalization, in the case of the German ethnic group; and emigration, as was chiefly favoured in the case of the Polish Jewish community.
