Why read it?
1 author picked Lithuania Ascending as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
This was the era when the modern states of Belarus and Ukraine were forming under Lithuanian rule or protection. The cities of those regions, as well as the princes, were all Orthodox Christians, but they preferred being governed by tolerant pagans who lived among them than being heavily taxed by Muslim nomads who despised them.
Our community of 6,000+ authors has personally recommended 10 books like Lithuania Ascending.
