About the Author

KEVIN O'CONNOR is Assistant Professor of History at Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington. He is also the author of The History of the Baltic States (Greenwood, 2003).


"The book is well referenced and benefits from the citation of websites which should enable the reader to update much of the factual information given. It is a bold enterprise that seems to have succeeded." - LENNUK
"Baltic expert O'Connor offers an accessible account of the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian people for general readers and travelers, explaining the region's complex geopolitics and history, including the effects of the Soviet era, the impact of religions, including the rise of Orthodoxy and Lutheranism, the demise of the Jewish community in the Second World War and its quiet rebirth, the roles of marriage and family life, gender issues, education, holidays, cuisine, leisure activities, folklore, literature, the media and cinema, performing arts, architecture and housing, and art. Particularly interesting is the story of the various languages in the region and the influence of its many neighbors in all directions." - Reference & Research Book News/Art Book News Annual 2007
