- The Baltic States – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania
Country by country, the book describes the process of political change and integration from the late 1970s to the 2000s.
Author Mary King has selected a variety of articles from The Times to portray each country’s transition, including the influence of popular movements and the methods used --boycotts, civil disobedience, demonstrations, picketing, strikes, vigils, economic reform models, and institutional change. King’s original narrative provides valuable context and analysis.
