- 'At long last, a book that does not seek to impose a politically correct, ultranationalistic, retrospective "Vilnius" on the many centuries of Vilna, Vilne, and Wilno. Laimonas Briedis, a remarkable and courageous cultural historian, reconstructs the multicultural splendor of centuries gone by, with a passion for equal celebration of each of the city's cultures. This important book initiates a genuinely new and long overdue phase in the historiography of one of Europe's erstwhile bastions of pluralism and diversity. It is delightfully written, with the precision of a scholar and the soul of a storyteller.'
