Format: Hardcover
but I have done so with this one and have referred to it multiple times. The book examines the relationship between the Baltic Germans -who had been there for centuries- and the Latvians, as well as to a lesser extent with the Russians. The book is convincing in its view that the Baltic Germans were indeed "loyal" to the Tsar and not to Germany itself. The reason for this is that they wanted to maintain the economic power that they had wielded since the early 1200s. I, personally, did not buy the book to explore the relationship with the Tsar, but only to learn about the Baltic Germans and their relationships with other groups. The book did not, however, satiate my appetite for more information, indeed it made me crave much more. I would love it if Mr. Henriksson would publish another book on the Baltic German-Latvian relationships for an earlier period in history!!

The book is awash in endnotes and various citations, but if I were to publish another edition, I would get rid of the endnotes, and replace them with footnotes. I find it a bit tedious to have to refer to the end of the book to get a little more elaboration on a topic mentioned in the text. (There are dozens of citations per chapter.) That being said, I wholeheartedly recommend this book to those that want to know more about the Baltic German-Latvian and Baltic German-Tsar relationship!!

For research, this is an excellent sources for minute details outlining the German society and influence within Latvia over the centuries. Explains political, educational, and social interactions between two nations melded together.

Unquestionably a one of a kind book on turn of the century german life in Riga,latvia. Excellent source material for any history student working on eastern european studies. I had the privalege of being a student of the author when he was a history professor in Shepherdstown WV, many years ago. Highly Recommended.
