Second edition. An interesting description of the edition of On the Establishment of... Andrzej Zahorski in his book Spór o Stanisława Augusta: It was probably the first work of political propaganda in modern Poland (...) In the dispute over Stanislaw August, this book played a special role. It was written by people preparing the insurrection with the express purpose of rallying the hearts and minds of the nation to the struggle. The work "On the Establishment..." was intended by its authors to be a propaganda work, it was intended to show Poles that armed struggle for Poland was the only way to maintain the Republic as an independent state. All negotiations, compromises, acts of humility and humiliation did not lead to anything, did not achieve the goal, did not stop the appetites of partitioning neighbors. Therefore, it is necessary to beat and beat - it is necessary to learn the strategy of victory from the French, who were able to defend the Republic against the invasion of all monarchical Europe. One of the key publications to Polish history of the late eighteenth century.
