"Gorenburg marshals an impressive array of evidence to demonstrate the ways in which ethnic institutions shaped cultural mobilization within Russia's republics. The result is a work that is both rich in detail and consequential for institutionalist understandings of ethnic politics." Mark Beissinger, University of Wisconsin, Madison
"This study applies institutionalist analysis to the question of nationalist mobilization in four republics of the Russian Federation. By emphasizing distinct mass-mobilization patterns, it goes beyond previous institutionalist interpretations that have tended to focus exclusively on elite-level nationalism. Because of its careful empirical tracing of mass-based nationalist mobilization, it makes a significant contribution to our knowledge about nationalism in the Russian Federation and beyond." Lars-Erik Cederman, Harvard University
"A treasure trove of data, rich narrative, and critical questions that students of ethnic nationalism, center-periphery relations, democratization, and social movement would do well to mine further." Slavic Review
"This impressive volume by Dmitry P. Gorenburg adds to the growing literature on the rise of nationalist movements in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet state." American Journal of Sociology
"A most useful book." APSA Perspectives on Politics
This book is about the spread of nationalism in the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It argues that the structure of the Soviet state played the key role in causing the surge of nationalism that occurred during this period throughout the Communist world. Focusing on the emergence and development of nationalist movements in four regions of the Russian Federation: Bashkortostan, Chuvashia, Khakassia, and Tatarstan, it reveals that pre-existing ethnic institutions affected the tactics of the movement leaders.
