Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and PolandeBook - 2014
After emerging from the long shadow cast by the Soviet Union, the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and neighboring Poland transitioned from communism to market economies and instituted democratic reforms in a remarkably short time. Although each continues to contend with various economic and political issues, their successes have allowed them to become some of the few former Eastern bloc states to join the European Union. The journeys each country has made-from antiquity to the present-and the remarkable peoples and cultures that make their populations are the subjects of this captivating volume.
