At the book launch, Estonian Ambassador to Poland Taavi Toom said that this book being published in Polish is a significant event. “This is the first book in Polish that addresses the history of the Baltic states as a whole,” said Ambassador Toom.
After the presentation of the book, Andres Kasekamp gave a public lecture at the University of Warsaw entitled “The history of the Baltic states – differences and similarities”.
Andres Kasekamp’s book “A History of the Baltic States” was initially published in 2010 in England and by today has also been published in Estonian, Latvian and Polish. Kasekamp’s monograph has earned him the research prize of the Baltic Assembly and the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies book award.
The publication of the book in Polish was supported by the Polish Institute of International Affairs, the Estonian Embassy in Warsaw, and the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute.
