Charles Clarke should have looked more closely at UK provision in Baltic studies ("'Purist' Clarke states his case", THES, May 30). He would have found the Baltic Research Unit recently set up at the University of Glasgow, as well as the many academics and postgraduates studying the Baltic in other universities.
