Generally, historians write from a distance in time and space. Alfred Erich Senn, Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin, presents his study of recent developments in Lithuania from the perspective of a historian, yet with the immediacy of an eye-witness to these events. In his introduction the author states: "The study at hand purposes to explain the background and development of Lithuanian politics through the summer and fall of 1988, concentrating first of all on the Lithuanians' historical consciousness as a factor in the development of their national consciousness and of their political and cultural life."
