Editorial Reviews

Review

"When one reads of the dislocations from their land, armed conflict and conquest, and the systemic oppression that some peoples have endured, it comes as no surprise that in the power vacuum caused by the collapse of the Soviet Union, ancient rivalries have surfaced and threaten to fracture further an already fractured empire. As those conflicts attract more and more attention in the West, this dictionary will become more important as a sound, accessible source of information about the groups, their grudges, and their aspirations."-Wilson Library Bulletin

"A well written dictionary that all collections supporting research on Russia or the Soviet Union will want to purchase."- Reference Book Review

..."a highly useful source for overviews of the various ethnic groupings and identifying English-language sources dealing with the issue. Recommended for academic libraries supporting Russian Studies programs."-Choice
