Product Description:
The history of eastern European is dominated by the story of the rise of the Russian empire, yet Russia only emerged as a major power after 1700. For 300 years the greatest power in Eastern Europe was the union between the kingdom of Poland and the grand duchy of Lithuania, one of the longest-lasting political unions in European history. Yet because it ended in the late-eighteenth century in what are misleadingly termed the Partitions of Poland, it barely features in standard accounts of European history.

The Making of the Polish-Lithuanian Union 1385-1569 tells the story of the formation of a consensual, decentralised, multinational, and religiously plural state built from below as much as above, that was founded by peaceful negotiation, not war and conquest. From its inception in 1385-6, a vision of political union was developed that proved attractive to Poles, Lithuanians, Ruthenians, and Germans, a union which was extended to include Prussia in the 1450s and Livonia in the 1560s. Despite the often bitter disagreements over the nature of the union, these were nevertheless overcome by a republican vision of a union of peoples in one political community of citizens under an elected monarch. Robert Frost challenges interpretations of the union informed by the idea that the emergence of the sovereign nation state represents the essence of political modernity, and presents the Polish-Lithuanian union as a case study of a composite state.

The modern history of Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, and Belarus cannot be understood without an understanding of the legacy of the Polish-Lithuanian union. This volume is the first detailed study of the making of that union ever published in English.

The Invincible Heart: The Story of the Lithuanian Heart of a Mother, A Daughter, And a Country

The Invincible Heart: The Story of the Lithuanian Heart of a Mother, A Daughter, And a Country
 
Product Description:
Preface

As a genealogist who spent several years researching ancestors, I wanted to do more. I did not want just to gather family names. I wanted to weave together all the records, papers, memories, history, photos, and random facts into a book, one that summarizes my research, tells a meaningful story, and shares a legacy. As you read this book, you will come to understand why I chose my Lithuanian grandmother as my main character. The Invincible Heart is an historical novel based on the life of Jadvyga Vaitkutė and her homeland.
Be filled with admiration for the Lithuanian people as you relive the victories and devastating defeats in this chronicle of their country. Travel with Jadvyga while she experiences the horrors of life in steerage when courageously making her unforgettable journey to America in 1901. Discover how political unrest, terror, raging fires, epidemics, threats of imprisonment, and the relentless iron rule of Russia affect the heart of this young Lithuanian and her homeland.
My journey while writing this book was full of surprises. I learned not only about the process of writing and publishing a manuscript but also about my family. This was one of the most emotional and rewarding journeys I have ever taken.
Shortly after I began writing, my husband was diagnosed with a rare aggressive cancer. He died before the book was published. During the months of his illness I was so thankful that I could look to my grandmother’s example for strength and face difficult times with courage and grace. The research and the writing changed me. I now am more grounded in the knowledge of my past, and in my day-to-day activities I recognize evidence that the blood of my Lithuanian ancestors runs through my veins.
My grandparents had seven children. One of them, my father Philip John Krausman, is still alive as of this writing. He will be 100 years old in May 2016. He is healthy, and his mind is quite alert. I am so thankful for the hours I spent with him recording stories of his childhood and early years. His sister Ida died in 2015 at the age of 107, but not without leaving almost twenty pages of well-written memories that were distributed at her funeral.
This is an historical novel. As you read it, try to put yourself in the setting and experience the time and place. Perhaps you will be as affected and changed as I was while composing the chronicle.

Lithuania History: Early History, Society, Economy, Culture, Government and Politics

Product Description:

Traditions of Lithuanian statehood date from the early middle Ages. As a nation, Lithuania emerged about 1230 under the leadership of Duke Mindaugas. He united Lithuanian tribes to defend themselves against attacks by the Teutonic Knights, who had conquered the kindred tribes of Prussia and also parts of present-day Latvia. In 1251 Mindaugas accepted Latin Christianity, and in 1253 he became king. But his nobles disagreed with his policy of coexistence with the Teutonic Knights and with his search for access to Western Europe. Mindaugas was killed, the monarchy was discontinued, and the country reverted to paganism. His successors looked for expansion toward the Slavic East. At that early stage of development, Lithuania had to face the historically recurring question dictated by its geopolitical position--whether to join western or Eastern Europe
