Languages of publication
The key objective of the article is to present, compare and criticize three selected geopolitical and geostrategic concepts concerning the Arctic area. One of the main questions emerging from the analysis of relatively old concepts of George Renner, Alexander de Seversky and André Beaufre is whether (to what extent) and how they are dealing with the present situation in the Arctic as well as if there could be find some wider framework for geopolitical analysis of the Far North. Moreover, an attempt to show the significance of issues related to the northern polar areas, particularly in geopolitical perspective, was made. Indeed, it is important to recognize and distinguish phenomena, which may play crucial role in shaping the renewed geopolitical Arctic region. Without a doubt, some of the issues raised by these authors remain valid nowadays, nevertheless, it should be considered today if there may appear favorable conditions for the more far-reaching consequences in the future, taken by mentioned theoreticians into account.
