Dear Tomas Baranauskas,

today I have read the English summary of your book "Lietuvos valstybes istakos", and I want to congratulate you to an excellent work. I have read it with very great interest, and I regard your arguments as convincing (although I am not an expert). So, for instance, the internal quarrel in the Duchy of Polotsk around 1183 as the turning point, when the Grand Duchy of Lithuania could start arising.

It is very good that you have brought a rather long summary in English. I am sure that your future research will be important too, and I wish you good luck!

Sven Ekdahl
