Review: S. Salmonowicz, Polnische Preussen oder Westpreussen. Ausgewählte Studien, Instytut Kaszubski: Gdańsk 2018, 159 pp.

In 2018, Professor Stanisław Salmonowicz, published his latest book entitled Polish Prussia or West Prussia. Selected studies (Kashubian Institute in Gdańsk). It consists of the author's biography and eight texts published in the last 30 years. The key binding individual works is the subject of Prussia, in which S. Salmonowicz specializes and is the undisputed scientific authority. They raise the issue of relations between Royal Prussia and the Crown, the role of Konigsberg in the era of enlightenment, the functioning of the Academic Schools in Prussia and their importance for the identity of its inhabitants, the language in everyday life of early modern Toruń, the culture of Pomerania and the image of Poland seen through the eyes of Georg Forster. Assembling them in a single publication is a major asset for researchers dealing with issues of Prussian and wider, with modern history.

Słowa kluczowe: Prusy, Oświecenie, Toruń
