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. Autori, humanitaro un makslas zinatnu parstavji, rakstos pieversusies specifiskai garigas un intelektualas dzives jomai - idejam, teliem un simboliem, kas kops 20.gs. sakuma formejusi nacijas un valsts ideologisko pamatu. Par galveno refleksijas avotu krajuma kalpo literatura, teatra maksla, religija, valoda un tas politika."
