The Baltic Sea area has been in a constant flux throughout its history as the integration and interaction processes have shaped its societies and people. Today it is impossible to think about these processes without discussing the role of media. The media have shown us how Baltic rim societies resemble each other and face the same problems. The media have also constructed boundaries and borders of different kinds, enabled communication between the citizens of various nations, and participated in the social, cultural and intellectual revolutions of the 1990s and 2000s. The articles in this book illuminate the role of the media in disclosing and creating a present and past reality in the Baltic world of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
