The Other Prussia: Royal Prussia, Poland and Liberty, 1569-1772
This book focuses on the history of Royal Prussia--the 'other Prussia'--which was part of the Polish state from 1454 to 1793. It studies the complex relationship between Germans and Slavs in the Polish-Prussian borderlands, and demonstrates the importance of national and historical myth-making for power politics. Analysing the rivalry between the multi-national, constitutionalist Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and its centralised, dynastic neighbour Brandenburg-Prussia, this study contributes to our understanding of the process of early modern nation-building and the formation of national identity.
