Until the reestablishment of Latvian independence in 1991, Soviet dominance served for nearly fifty years to hinder publication of any complete and objective historical record of the region. Andrejs Plakans now places the evolution and formation of the Latvian nation in a balanced, historical framework that stretches from the early medieval period to the present. Particular emphasis is given to the period between the Latvian \"national awakening\" of 1816-1819 and the emergence of an independent Latvia in 1918. From this point forward, the book extensively chronicles an evolving Latvian state structure, provides an appendix that summarizes all changes and important officeholders, and explains the current system of political parties. This postperestroika historical narrative should contribute significantly to assessing the likelihood of Latvia\'s survival as an independent republic.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"The populations of the Eastern Baltic Littoral -- Invasion, conquest, and the creation of Livonia -- Politics, economics, and religion in the Sixteenth Century -- The Trifurcated Littoral in the Seventeenth Century -- The Baltic Littoral in the Russian Empire -- A century of reforms -- The Latvian nation acquires a state -- The loss of independence -- The reemergence of an independent Latvia -- Continuities and discontinuities.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/335132991<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/335132991#Series\/studies_of_nationalities<\/a>> ; # Studies of nationalities.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/603894071<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The Latvians : a short history<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"31901528<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/31901528#PublicationEvent\/stanford_calif_hoover_institution_press_stanford_university_1995<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/335132991#Agent\/hoover_institution_press_stanford_university<\/a>> ; # Hoover Institution Press, Stanford University<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.gbv.de\/dms\/bowker\/toc\/9780817993023.pdf<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780817993023<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780817993016<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/31901528<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
