BeschreibungDiplomats representing Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania continued to perform their functions even after annexation of their countries by the Soviet Union in 1940 and the subsequent elimination of their respective governments. Throughout the Cold War, certain Western nations, including the United States, continued to grant recognition to these "diplomats without countries." These aging diplomats persisted in this anomalous situation until the ultimate restoration of Baltic independence. Their brave and highly imaginative activities offer an insight into the resiliency of the human spirit, especially in support of ideals such as self-determination and human rights.
Pressestimmen?This book addresses an interesting detail of the history of the Cold War as well as of international diplomatic recognition policies. For lower-and upper-level undergraduate collections.?-Choice
