A propos du livre :
Critique: The Power of Song serves not only as the quintessential study of what constitutes the heart of the remarkable and inspiring movements of the Baltic people, it will stand as a distinct contribution to the study of civil resistance movements overall. -Peter Ackerman, founding chair of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict and co-author of Strategic Nonviolent Conflict and A Force More Powerful "An excellent and thorough work and a significant and important addition to our understanding of the role that folklore and popular culture play in shaping political events. - Timothy Tangherlini, UCLA A monumental study addressing a sorely neglected aspect of one of the last centurys most dramatic geopolitical upheavals. This book will stand, for years and even decades to come, as the standard, authoritative source on its topic. - --Kevin C. Karnes, Emory University
