Overview

Russia and the former Soviet Union, and the lands of the former Habsburg Empire have an extraordinarily complex and varied pattern of ethnic settlement which has extended a great influence of their historical development. This multi-authored volume seeks new interpretations and confronts issues as diverse as the political role of Czech gymnastic clubs, Russian-Muslim relations in the Russian Empire, the ethnic factor in Stalin's purges, and the nature of Russian imperialism in Finland.

Booknews
Presents selected papers from an August 1995 meeting, by writers from Russia, Slovenia, Finland, Canada, the US, and England. They provide insight on inter-ethnic relations, national aspirations, and problems of governing ethnically diverse societies in the region. The nature of Russian imperialism is the main motif, with discussion of Russian- Muslim relations, the Finnish, Jewish, and Ukrainian experiences, Stalin's purges, Czech-German and Czech-Slovak relations, and the theme of emigration as seen through Slovene eyes. Morrison is affiliated with the University of Leeds. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
