A detailed account of the history of the Freemasons in Reval (Tallinn), the capital of Estonia, from the founding of Reval as a separate state to the Russian Empire. The history of lodges in Reval is also discussed, along with the social and political environment--marked by the ideas of the Enlightenment--in which the Freemasons of Reval lived and worked. This work includes a biographical lexicon, which records, in addition to many names of Freemasons in other regions, over 400 members of four lodges in Reval.

Located within the forgotten half of Europe, historically trapped between Germany and Russia, Estonia has been profoundly shaped by the violent conflicts and shifting political fortunes of the last century. This innovative study traces the tangled interaction of Estonian historical memory and national identity in a sweeping analysis extending from the Great War to the present day. At its heart is the enduring anguish of World War Two and the subsequent half-century of Soviet rule. Shadowlands tells this story by foregrounding the experiences of the country's intellectuals, who were instrumental in sustaining Estonian historical memory, but who until fairly recently could not openly grapple with their nation's complex, difficult past.

"In this collection which contains both autobiography and fiction, the prominent Estonian artist and writer Toomas Vint, whose career spans the Soviet period and Estonia's re-gaining of independence, demonstrates his characteristic mischievous, dark sense of humour, an artist's eye for visual detail, and an experimental approach to form. His main themes are the fine dividing line between fantasy and reality, man's foibles, frailties and capacity for self-deception, and the absurd and sometimes tragicomic nature of the human condition"-- Provided by publisher.

"This novel paints a fascinating portrait of bohemian culture in Estonia in the last quarter of the twentieth century. The "cavemen" in question are the regulars at the underground (both literally and figuratively) bar called "The Cave, " including artists, musicians, writers, and philosophers, who escape the dreary Soviet reality "above ground" with vodka and high-minded discussion in their secret hideaway. The arrival of national independence upsets the balance of these dissidents' lifestyle, and the narrator recounts how each individual adapts to their newfound freedom. An illuminating and thrilling look into life on the fringes of Soviet culture, both pre- and post-perestroika, as well as a meditation on what it means to be Estonian" -- Provided by publisher.
