Governing the Locals: Local Self-Government and Ethnic Mobilization in Russiaby Tomila V. Lankina
Pub. Date: 05/26/2004
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
Governing the Locals examines the impact of Russia's local self-governing institutions on nationalist movement mobilization in Russia. It is the first study identifying municipalities as central to explaining aspects of ethnic or broader social activism in post-Soviet Russia. Because the book is comparative in scope, it also contributes to debates on movement dynamics and nationalist mobilization in other national and institutional settings.
