Item description for Lithuania 1940: Revolution from Above. (On the Boundary of Two Worlds: Identity, Freedom, and Moral Imagination in the Baltics) by Alfred Erich Senn...

In June 1940, as Nazi troops marched into Paris, the Soviet Red Army marched into Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia; seven weeks later, the USSR Supreme Soviet ratified the Soviet takeover of these states. For half a century, Soviet historians insisted that the three republics had voluntarily requested incorporation into the Soviet Union. Now it has become possible to examine the events of that tumultuous time more carefully. Alfred Erich Senn, the author of books on the formation of the Lithuanian state in 1918-1920 and on the reestablishment of that independence in 1988-1991, has produced a fascinating account of the Soviet takeover, juxtaposing a picture of the disintegration and collapse of the old regime with the Soviets' imposition of a new order. Discussing the historiography and the living memory of the events, he uses the image of a "shell game" that focused attention on the work of a supposedly "non-communist" government while in the hothouse conditions of military occupation Moscow undermined the state's independent institutions and introduced a revolution from above. Alfred Erich Senn is Professor Emeritus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, and he is an adjunct professor at Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania. Besides his work on Lithuania, he is the author of The Russian Revolution in Switzerland (1971) and Power, Politics and the Olympic Games (1999).

Reviews - What do customers think about Lithuania 1940: Revolution from Above. (On the Boundary of Two Worlds: Identity, Freedom, and Moral Imagination in the Baltics)?

Unorganized and hard to follow for someone new to the topic  Dec 14, 2008
The book describes how Lithuania lost its independence to the Soviet Union during World War II. It is written by a capable scholar so my expectations were high. I have to say I am satisfied with the book, but only because I am familiar with the events and I can appreciate the details, insights, and conclusions.

I can easily see how this book can be confusing to someone who is new to the topic. The author easily jumps from one topic or period to another, comes back to it later, and then swings by it again. Some portions are repeated in several places. Passages are sometimes interrupted by interesting but rather irrelevant observations, tangent issues, methodological discussions, etc. Sometimes you will find cryptic clues to certain events or people that are not properly explained.

Overall, good book, but recommend to read some general Lithuanian history before taking this one.
