Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Politics in the Commonwealth of Independent States
Anatoly M. Khazanov
"A major book from one of the greatest social scientists now at work."
John A. Hall, author of Powers and Liberties
A world-renowned anthropologist, Anatoly M. Khazanov offers a witty, insightful, and cautionary analysis of ethnic nationalism and its pivotal role in the collapse of the Soviet empire.
"Khazanov's encyclopedic knowledge of the history and culture of post-Soviet societies, combined with field research there since the 1960s, informs the case studies with a singular authoritative voice. This volume is destined to be an absolutely necessary reference for the understanding of ethnic relations and the politics of minorities in the ex-USSR into the next century."Leonard Plotnicov, editor of Ethnology
