Editorial Reviews

Rancour-Laferriere (Russian, U. of California-Davis) discusses the development of Russian national awareness, nationalism, the question of the Russian character, and the role of psychoanalysis in understanding national feelings. He then explores the historical, social, and political dimensions of Russian identity. The role of the "other" is evaluated, with discussion of the perceived enemies of Russia, particularly ethnic minorities. Includes discussion of assimilation, the "narcissism of empire," ontogenetic explorations, and more psychoanalytic analysis of Russian masochism. Annotation c.
