Summary/Abstract: The book is one of the links of research on the development of historical research during the period of Polish “people’s Republic” and the careers of representatives of the scientific community and it is a kind of case study of the operation of the “court science" community of supporters and promoters. The course of the career of Henryk Rechowicz, a historian and activist of the PZPR born in Dąbrowa Basin, has been recreated: a brilliant promotion was highlighted first (inclusion of exposed positions in the scientific community of the Katowice Voivodeship), then degradation resulting from his belonging to a group centered around the “Gierek team", and then the return to scientific and academic work, made in reality by the end of the Polish People's Republic and the beginning of the Third Polish Republic.
