" I feel that one of the principal contributions of Baltic States to scholarship is in its introduction of a number of essays in specialized areas where the literature in English is either nonexistent or grossly inadequate. I would put in this category Olavi Arens' "The Estonian Maapaev During 1917," Aba Strazhas' "The Land Oberost and its place in Germany's Ostpolitik," Michael Garleff's "Ethnic Minorities in the Estonian and Latvian Parliaments: The Politics of Coalition," Julius Slavenas' "General Hans von Seeckt and the Baltic Question," and David Kirby's "Morality or Expediency? The Baltic Question in British-Soviet Relations, 1941-1942." These essays are valuable to scholars who specialize in contemporary Baltic history and politics and to anyone who is interested in the Baltic experience as a case in Twentieth century European nation building and struggle for the preservation of national independence. Other essays deal with broader subjects and, therefore, are of greater interest to the general reader. They include Vardys's "The Rise of the Authoritarian Rule in the Baltic States," Alexander Dallin's "The Baltic States Between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia," and Boris Meissner's "The Baltic Question in World Politics." I found Vardys' essay on Baltic authoritarianism especially noteworthy. (Julius Smulkstys - Lituanus) xxx
