Booknews
With separate chapters on Russians, Jews, Armenians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Tatars, and Poles, contributions explore the web of relations between kin-states, host- states, and trans-border ethnic groups in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The focus is on the efforts of Soviet successor governments to buttress both their national identities and their national borders by reaching out to co-ethnic populations abroad. Two concerns emerge: the ways the new international boundaries are likely to remain points of contestation for years to come, and the world-wide phenomena of the increasingly permeable boundary between domestic politics and foreign policy.
