Editorial Reviews

Reference Reviews
Written by a noted Estonian native and political science scholar, this "historical dictionary" includes much more than basic dictionary definitions. The extended definitions...[are] detailed and often contain useful cross-references....This volume would most likely be of interest to libraries...that support study and scholarship relating to the Baltic States.
Slavic and East European Information Resources
...an informative reference work focused on the present state of the Estonian nation and its orientation toward the future....this work is a welcome addition to the growing body of reference works about Estonia and should be considered an integral part of any well-rounded reference collection on Eastern Europe.
