Editorial Reviews


Tuminez's study of Russian mationalism explores important links between nationalism and foreign policy. Recommended. (CHOICE)

This brilliant book illuminates one of the crucial problems of the twenty-first century. No subject arouses stronger emotions, for better and worse, than nationalism. No country's nationalism is more important for humanity's future than Russia's. Dr. Tuminez clarifies the various formulations of Russian nationalism in historical perpective and shows their implications for foreign policy. These insights have worldwide significance. (David A. Hamburg M.D., president emeritus, Carnegie Corporation of New York)

This book argues, in part, that Russia's evolution as a state has been guided for centuries by the imperatives of a sprawling empire. As a consequence, the idea of the people or 'nation' as the arbiter of political authority did not take root. In the past decade, Russians have dismantled the old empire, embarked on democratic reforms, and begun shaping a new state. The future of this new Russia remains unknown, but competing variants of Russian nationalism today are key to shaping that future. Policymakers will gain both historical and practical insights from this well-written and thoughtful work. (Sam Nunn, Former U.S. Senator)

The nature of Russian nationalism fascinates, but its make-up is unsufficiently understood. This outstanding book illuminates an area of profound international importance which will help shape the twenty-first century. (The Rt. Hon. the Lord Owen CH, House of Lords, UK)

Perceptive and thoughtful. . . . A fair-minded and astute guide to the complex relationship between Russia’s internal politics and its foreign policy. (Geoffrey Hosking Slavic Review)

A well-researched and well-written book that tells an interesting and important story. . . . It will also serve undergraduates as an outstanding survey of the history of Russian nationalism. (H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online)
