Synopsis

This is a fascinating and very lucid translation of the autobiography of a highly significant figure in post-Soviet Eastern Europe. This stimulating read is a remarkable account of the final days of the Soviet union, and gives invaluable insights to historians and political scientists, as well as the general reader. 'The night that stirred the world's conscience' so Vytautas Landsbergis, the first President of independent, post-Soviet Lithuania, describes the night of 13 January 1991. Thousands of Lithuanians rallied to defend their Parliament against Russian tanks many of them crushed under the tank treads. They ensured the return of their country 'to the map of Europe and the fold of Western society'. Landsbergis retraces the process which led to that memorable night, discussing influences upon himself. He was born into a family of Lithuanian patriots and his interest in music and in the arts generally deepened his awareness and appreciation of Lithuanian culture. He also discusses his country's history under both German and Soviet occupation.

Eimutis Sova was Chairman of the Wales Baltic Society. Anthony Packer is Lecturer in Education at the School of Social Sciences, University of Wales, Cardiff. Professor Vytautas Landsbergis is a Lithuanian conservative politician and Member of the European Parliament.
