Riga Zinatne 2010 Paper Cover New 
285pp + 242 pp Text in English and Latvian."The purpose of this collection has not been to overview the historical developments for the 20-year period following the renewal of independence, but more so focusing on specific spiritual and intellectual aspects of life - its ideas, images, and symbols which, since the period of National Awakening in the mid 19th century, but especially at the beginning of the 20th century, have consciously or unconsciously created the ideological foundations for the nation and the state. Latvia and the Latvian dimension as it has been realised and recorded through its various symbols has become the subject for reflection through the looking glass of literature, theatre, art, religion, language and language politics." Interesting essays of a somewhat accademic bent. "Rakstu krajums veltits Latvijas Valsts atjaunotnes 20 gadiem.

The Ancient Amber Routes  Travels From Riga to Byzantium, Kalnins, Mara
19 Kalnins, Mara The Ancient Amber Routes Travels From Riga to Byzantium
Riga Petergailis 2014 New 
399pp. Illustrated. NEW - an unread copy,.Illustrated. Scarce. Dr. Mara Kalnins is a Fellow of Corpus Christi College and formerly University of Cambridge Reader in Modern English. "... A work of cultural history, tracing the movement of populations and far-reaching trading relations in Europe and beyond over more than 5000 years. It also serves as a travel guide, especially to the Baltic region where the amber originates, since the book is structured on journeys that Kalnins herself made, and it would be a helpful companion for any traveller. As such its scope is impressive, tracing the major routes of amber trade to the Greek and Roman worlds, the Black sea and even to the tomb of Tutankhamun. ..... The result is a historical map of the ancient world that radiates from the Baltic." (Notes And Queries)

A Journey to Nowhere Detours and Riddles in The Lands and History of Courland, Kauffmann, Jean - Paul
20 Kauffmann, Jean - Paul A Journey to Nowhere Detours and Riddles in The Lands and History of Courland
London Maclehose Press 2012 As New As New 
"Having first heard of Courland from Mara, a former lover, when he was a student in Canada in the 1960s, Kauffmann seems at first to be looking for something: a notion of the country of Mara’s birth; the character of the Courlandians; the grave of his cousin’s father, forcibly conscripted by the Nazis and killed in Courland in the Second World War. He finds none of these things, but, in a captivating and circumlocutory fashion, gleans amongst the ruins built by Courland’s various rulers half-glimpsed images of European history and of his own past. A complex, meditative mixture of memoir, travelogue and history, A Journey to Nowhere is a compelling exploration of the notions of identity, nationality and the capriciousness of memory." (Duncan) " A definitive book about a lost corner of Europe, and a fine travelogue." ( J. Lloyd)
