From 1993 to 1994, Sigrid Rausing completed her anthropological fieldwork on the penninsula of Noarootsi, a former Soviet border protection zone in Estonia. Abandoned watchtowers dotted the coastline, and the huge fields of the Lenin collective farm were laying fallow, waiting for claims from former owners who had fled war and Soviet and Nazi occupation. Rausing's research focused on the loss of historical memory during the Soviet occupation, and the slow revival of an independent Estonian culture, including the recognition of the minority Swedes in Estonia. She lived and worked amongst the villagers, witnessing their transition from repression to independence, and from Soviet neglect to post-Soviet austerity.

I have all kinds of books, Louis Lamore, craft (quilting, bearmaking, knitting, crochetingЙ) mystery, romance, history and lots of Medical/Nursing books including magazines(Orthpaedic Nursing, Nursing Magazine, American Journal of Nursing , to name a few.I can't mail them and do no ebay; any suggestions?

    I number the first 100 signatures (or keep going after 100 if it's in the middle of a line or some other situation where I don't want to cut off the next person). Number in UL corner, signature under or over my name, date in lower right. I carry an index card for each title that I haven't numbered out to 100, and update it at the end of each signing.

      Hi, I've been attempting to figure out which will work best for a new business I'm launching, squarespace or shopifyЙ they're both pretty great, and there are features I really like about each of them.
