In this volume, the author traces Estonia's evolution from prehistory to the present, when radical events in the former Soviet Union once again altered the destiny of this Baltic nation. He explores the remarkable changes in Estonia since 1980 - including its successful bid for sovereignty in 1991 - and frames his picture within the larger picture of the Soviet Union and its demise. Throughout his study, the author weaves in such key questions as: how did Estonia's quest for autonomy affect Soviet dissolution?; what role will the country play on the global stage?; what will Estonia's future hold?
