A History of Latvia
A History of Latvia
By Alfred Bilmanis
Princeton University Press, 1951, 441 pp.

This book, by the late Latvian diplomat, covers the whole range of his people's history. While occasionally marred by inaccuracies and flavored with the almost inevitable irritation of the spokesman for a small state in a world of blundering or sinister Great Powers, it is a valuable contribution, especially the chapters dealing with the twentieth century.
