Today, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is the most prosperous nation in Europe, a leading financial center, and a key player in the European Union. The Historical Dictionary of Luxembourg is an essential reference guide to this important, but relatively unknown European country. Written by an expert with nineteen years of experience in Luxembourg, the dictionary contains over 350 concise entries covering the prominent persons, places, events, and institutions in Luxembourg history as well as significant aspects of its politics, society, economy, and culture. Barteau's introduction offers an overview of the geography, people, language, religion, government, education, and history of the Grand Duchy. The dictionary also contains a chronology covering over two thousand years of Luxembourg history; maps; photographs; and lists of rulers, prime ministers, and American units stationed in the Grand Duchy during the world wars, and a comprehensive bibliography of over 500 entries.
