 H-Net Review: Elizabeth A. Drummond on The Other Prussia: Royal Prussia, Poland and ...
Friedrich analyzes the construction of a Prussian national identity in the province of Royal Prussia and its major cities of Danzig (Gdansk), Thorn (Torun), and Elbing (Elblag) from the Union of Lublin in 1569 to the first partition of Poland-Lithuania in 1772.
Friedrich's mastery of Polish sources, in particular, enables her to avoid the pitfalls of much of the German- and English-language literature-- namely, the over-reliance on German-language sources and secondary literature, a strategy that has often resulted in an over-emphasis on the German aspect of Royal Prussian history as well as of Prussian history in general.
Although Friedrich provides the necessary political and social context for her discussion of Prussian identity as well as a primer on the Polish-Lithuanian government in the form of a glossary, the text may be difficult for those readers unfamiliar with the structures of the Commonwealth and the myth of Sarmatianism.
