In 1998, Estonia became the first of the former Soviet republics to enter membership negotiations with the European Union. Since then it has been hailed as 'the model pupil' amongst the current applicants. This study traces the remarkable reforms that have propelled Estonia from the USSR to the threshold of the EU in less than a decade. The work also explores the tensions inherent in the concept of a postcommunist 'return to Europe'. Since 1991, membership of western transnational organizations has been consistently portrayed as the best guarantee of Estonia's independence. Yet the membership criteria imposed by these organizations have frequently confllicted with the nationalist priority of restoring a sovereign Estonian nation-state. At the same time, Estonia's geopolitically-sensitive location poses a dilemma for the West, thereby ensuring that the country will remain the 'litmus test' - not just of Russia's intentions towards Europe, but of the 'New Europe' as a whole.

Mehr als nur ziemlich beste Freunde... Mit 16 erleidet Justin einen Verkehrsunfall, der ihn fast tötet und eine langsam voranschreitende Autoimmunerkrankung auslöst. Er kann seine Arme und Beine nicht mehr bewegen, ist auf den Rollstuhl angewiesen. Sein Traum: den Jakobsweg gehen. Als er seinem Freund Patrick davon erzählt, zögert dieser nicht, sich mit ihm zusammen auf das Abenteuer einzulassen. Sechs Wochen sind die beiden unterwegs, die Reise bringt beide an ihre Grenzen, doch gemeinsam bewältigen sie die 800 Kilometer über Stock und Stein durch Nordspanien. Ein ungewöhnliches Zeugnis von Mut, Glauben und wahrer Freundschaft, das dazu anregt, das eigene Leben infrage zu stellen und Dinge zu wagen, die man bisher nie für möglich hielt.

Since the end of the Cold War there has been an increased interest in the Baltics. The Baltic States brings together three titles, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, to provide a comprehensive and analytical guide integrating history, political science, economic development and contemporary events into one account. Since gaining their independence, each country has developed at its own pace with its own agenda and facing its own obstacles. The authors examine the tensions accompanying a post-communist return to Europe after the long years of separation and how each country has responded to the demands of becoming a modern European state. Estonia was the first of the former Soviet republics to enter membership negotiations with the European Union in 1988 and is a potential candidate for the next round of EU expansion in 2004. Lithuania and Latvia have also expressed their desire for future membership of NATO and the EU.

From Communists to Foreign Capitalists explores the intersections of two momentous changes in the late twentieth century: the fall of Communism and the rise of globalization. Delving into the economic change that accompanied these shifts in central and Eastern Europe, Nina Bandelj presents a pioneering sociological treatment of the process of foreign direct investment (FDI). She demonstrates how both investors and hosts rely on social networks, institutions, politics, and cultural understandings to make decisions about investment, employing practical rather than rational economic strategies to deal with the true uncertainty that plagues the postsocialist environment. The book explores how eleven postsocialist countries address the very idea of FDI as an integral part of their market transition. The inflows of foreign capital after the collapse of Communism resulted not from the withdrawal of states from the economy, as is commonly expected, but rather from the active involvement of postsocialist states in institutionalizing and legitimizing FDI. Using a wide array of data sources, and combining a macro-level account of national variation in the liberalization to foreign capital with a micro-level account of FDI transactions in the decade following the collapse of Communism in 1989, the book reveals how social forces not only constrain economic transformations but also make them possible. From Communists to Foreign Capitalists is a welcome addition to the growing literature on the social processes that shape economic life.

TRAVEL: The Guide is an insightful, irreverent, and highly visual new take on travel that will challenge readers to rethink the way they look at travel and how they interact with the world around them. It's like an eye-opening TED Talk on travel that you can flip through at your own pace. Jason Cochran, author and editor for Frommer's guides, described it this way: "It’s not really just about travel. It’s about exploding every stereotype, fear, and expectation you have about the rest of the world and your place in it. Once you start flipping through, you’ll be consuming little knowledge bombs like potato chips. Good luck stopping. And good luck seeing things the same way ever again.” Mike Carter, a contributor to The Observer and The Guardian wrote: “Turns on its head just about everything we thought we knew about how to get the best out of our travels, gloriously debunking the myths and exposing the clichés along the way.”
