Lithuania experienced an immense change in political life and in the global balance of power during the late twentieth century. Darius Furmonavicius analyzes security developments in Lithuania between 1988 and 2006, a period marked by liberation from nearly fifty years of Soviet occupation, the collapse of the USSR, and the integration of the country into NATO. Lithuania continued to exist as a legal entity in international law, albeit in a tenuous form, as a result of its continuing diplomatic presence in international relations. Despite the occupation of its homeland, this situation continued until Lithuania once again declared its independence on March 11, 1990. "Lithuania Rejoins Europe" focuses on how liberation was achieved and how the country's consequent search for integration into the European and Transatlantic security framework has influenced both its own security development and European security as a whole.
