liechtenstein history and institutions of the princiality Reviews
Dated but still an important and detailed study of Liechtenstein, especially in the English historiography of the country. In fact, Raton's study is the only one I know of in English that uses a legal approach, and much of what he describes appears to be more than accurate to the period.
This was an interesting book about an interesting and unique place in the world. Raton gives the reader a thorough understanding the history, political evolution of this little alpine principality. While a general reader might be surprised by the amount of attention paid to treaties and constitutions, Raton still manages to even out the description of this country by dealing with its demographics and industries. Overall this was an enlightening book, even if a little heavy on the legalistic side.
