A detailed description of the structure and process of military publication in Poland. "Military media" include all publications issued by and addressed to officers and soldiers of the Polish armed forces. They range from highly classified General Staff bulletins to "official use" theoretical journals to a daily newspaper, and from the classified bulletins and journals directed at senior officers to an illustrated weekly for enlisted men. Military publications fall into two distinct categories: "professional" or "political." The audiences and functions of publications in each category are described, along with the editorial processes of different journals and the influences to which they are subjected from elements of the Polish military and from the political system at large. This study is one portion of a broad study of Polish media, summarized in R-2627. Other parts of the study are reported in N-1514/1, N-1514/2, N-1514/4, and N-1514/5.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation note series. The note was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1979 to 1993 that reported other outputs of sponsored research for general distribution.
