The Shadow in the East: Vladimir Putin and the New Baltic Front is a 2020 book by Aliide Naylor. The book documents the relationship between Russia and the Baltic states in the 21st century while exploring the unique identities of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The Moscow Times described the book as a "riveting debut", saying "Naylor combines lyrical personal observations with insightful political analysis to offer a timely and comprehensive picture of the complex societies, economies, and political landscapes of this frequently overlooked region." New Eastern Europe termed it a "captivating depiction of the relationship between domestic politics, geopolitics, socioeconomic issues and generational differences". National Review notes its coverage of contemporary Baltic life, "ranging from the hipsters of Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius to little delivery robots trundling along Estonian streets to song, folk culture, and even a spot of paganism."
