Lithuania : Past and Present (Classic Reprint)
by Ernest John Harrison


Overview - Excerpt from Lithuania: Past Present
In the following pages I have not attempted to do more than scratch the surface of a subject which, for adequate treatment, would require several large volumes. My main purpose is to arouse interest among English readers in a country and people whose glorious past and present renascence, under peculiarly moving conditions, are surely an earnest of great future achievement in all constructive activities.

Overview
Excerpt from Lithuania: Past Present
In the following pages I have not attempted to do more than scratch the surface of a subject which, for adequate treatment, would require several large volumes. My main purpose is to arouse interest among English readers in a country and people whose glorious past and present renascence, under peculiarly moving conditions, are surely an earnest of great future achievement in all constructive activities. To this end I have tried to give a general outline of Lithuanian history, geography, economic position and possibilities, present-day political problems, cultural characteristics, etc., so that Britishers may no longer be able to plead ignorance as an excuse for their unfortunately apathetic attitude towards the legitimate aspirations of the Lithuanian people. Should the reception accorded this modest preliminary essay warrant it, I shall gladly hereafter embark upon a more exhaustive and ambitious handling of this fascinating subject.
For much of the material embodied in this book I am indebted principally to Stasys alkauskis' masterly study Sur les Confins de Deux Mondes, W. St. Vidunas' La Lituanie dans le Passe et dans le Present, and Dr. Joseph Ehret's Litauen, which have rendered readily accessible many facts which otherwise might have eluded compilation.
I make no apology for largely employing the Lithuanian spelling of place names.
