With the fall of the Soviet Union, the Baltic states returned to Europe and seem intent on preserving the spirit of cooperation and solidarity that emerged during their struggle for independence more than a decade ago. This is the most recent and up-to-date narrative history of the Baltic states, providing readers with an ideal starting point for research on the area.
It includes a timeline of major events, biographic sketches of noteworthy historical figures, a glossary, and a bibliographic essay.
