Abstract:

"Located on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea, Latvia has had a turbulent past. Its larger neighbors (Russia, Germany, Poland, and Sweden) all occupied this area of the Baltic at different times, but it was not until the 20th century that Latvia achieved independence. Almost two decades since the country's emergence on the international scene, its economy is growing, and it has attained membership into NATO and the European Union. This Historical Dictionary of Latvia tells the turbulent history of Latvia through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on important people, places, and events."--BOOK JACKET.
