(4),[v]-x,1-421,(1). 8vo, navy blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. East European Monographs, number 144. "'TheLatvian Impact on the Bolshevik Revolution' is the first full-scale study of the relationship in a Western language. Since 1918, the cognoscenti of the Revolution have asked the question: 'Could Lenin's government have stayed in power in its early years without the Latvian Strelki guarding it and fighting for it?' The role of the Latvian Strelki in stabilizing the Bolshevik government was well recognized in its day by Russians and Westerners alike, and it was only when Western historians of the Revolution began to write their works that the Strelki were shunted aside, placed on a deadened track and their role in the Revolution and the Civil War was forgotten. Ezergailis has complete command of the Latvian, Russian, and Western sources and has presented to us a unique work that will not only illuminate hidden recesses of the revolution but will also be a challenge for the Western historians who thought they knew everything about the event." - from the dustjacket.

6 JOSSELSON, Michael, and Diana JOSSELSON. BARCLAY DE TOLLY, Michael. Commander : A Life of Barclay de Tolly. First Edition in dustjacket
Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, Toronto, Melbourne, 1980, ISBN:0192158545 
JOSSELSON, Michael, and Diana JOSSELSON. The Commander : A Life of Barclay de Tolly. Oxford, New York, Toronto, Melbourne : Oxford University Press, 1980. First Edition. Pp (6),vii-ix,(3),[1]-275,(1),+ 8 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the first tuil-length study of the remarkable man who overcame the handicap of coming from an emigre (Scottish) family settled in Livonia (later divided into Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania), to become a Prince of the Russian Empire, the Russian Minister or War, and in the eyes of many the real architect of Napoleon's defeat in the campaign of 1812. The story covers a number of Napoleonic campaigns and sheds, in particular, new light on the lesser-known fighting in the period between Austerlitz and Friedland and on the Finnish campaign of 1808; it also tries to adjust historical reputations so greatly influenced by Tolstoy's vivid 'historical' portraits in War and Peace. Michael Barclay de Tolly (1761-1818) was brought up in a strict Protestant mould very different from the atmosphere of arbitrariness and indifference which fashioned most of his Russian compatriots and, even though he was entered in the Russian army at six years old and went on active service at fifteen, he always seemed a little apart from the others. He distinguished himself in the Turkish war of 1787, the European campaigns of 1790 onwards and, most spectacularly, in the Finnish war of 1808. As Russian Minister of War he prepared the country for Napoleon's invasion. But it was his position as field commander of the main Russian army during the first part of the 1812 campaign thatbrougtit him his greatest fame, for his judicious strategy, and disgrace, in Russian eyes, for allowing Napoleon to adavance so deep into Russia. Ultimately restored to favour, named Field-Marshal, Commander-in-Chief, and eventually Prince of the Russian Empire, Barclay accompanied the victorious advance of the Allies across Europe, from the Russian border to the triumphal entry into Paris in 1814 and again in 1815."

Latvian dainas often feature pre-Christianthemes and legends, drone vocal styles and Baltic zithers (kokle). Dainas are very short, usually only one or two unrhymed stanzas, unrhymed and in afour-footed trochaic metre. Lyrically, dainas concern themselves with nati ve mythology but, in contrast to most similar forms, does not have any legendary heroes. Stories often revolve around pre-Christian deities like the sun goddess Saule, the moon god Meness and, most notably, the life of people, especially its three most important events - birth, wedding and death (including burial).” from Wikipedia.
