Summary/Abstract: The research presented in this volume shows that there exists a whole array of different opinions and interpretations related to the Baltic region; it even suggests some gloomy forecasts that this region is more a virtual construct than reality, and that the three Baltic states, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, are gradually becoming more and more disparate. However, this volume also strongly suggests that we still have scholarly interests in and natural curiosity about one another. We hope that the articles published in this volume of Regional Studies titled Baltic Region: Past and New Challenges will inspire fruitful discussions, new enlightening research or at least some natural curiosity about what is happening around us.
