Ethnonationalism and State-Building: The Communist and Postcommunist Experience


We will explore nationalities issues. We examine interpretations of the development and role of ethnic politics and ethnonationalism in the Soviet Union, especially its role in the disintegration of the Soviet state. We then explore the role of ethnonationalism in state building and interstate relations in the successor states.
