Summary / Abstract:

ENThe book provides a comprehensive picture of the Finnish and Lithuanian minority policies between the World Wars. The work also offers an opportunity to compare Finland and Lithuania as well as individual minority groups in this respect. Both countries opted for a policy that was quite tolerant by the standards of the time, but not all minorities were treated in the same way. It is evident that changes in political governance also affected the relationship between the majority (titular) population and national minorities. [Publisher annotation]
