By Andrei Edemsky and Paul Kolstoe: Russia's Policy Towards the Diaspor. .245 11. Addressing the Diaspora Question. During the Soviet era the Russian diaspora justified its presence in the non-Russian republics by adopting an 'internationalist' selfunderstanding, claiming that in a 'mature socialist society' ethnic differences no longer mattered. When the Soviet Union began to crumble this selfunderstanding was intensified and made more explicit.

Paul Kolstoe traces the growth and role of the Russian population in non-Russian areas of the Russian empire and then in the non-Russian Soviet republics. In the post-Soviet period special attention is devoted to the situation of Russians in the Baltic countries, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine and the former Central Asian and Caucasian republics. Amazingly, especially given the ever-changing nature of politics in the FSU, it is still relevant. If you are interested in the politics of diaspora Russians, you must read this book.

The resurgence of Russian nationalism, exemplified by the electoral success of Vladimir Zhirinovsky's Liberal Democratic Party, is driven by support from the 25 million Russians now outside the boundaries of Russia proper since the break-up of the USSR in 1989. They are subjects of states where the majority population is ethnically, linguistically and often denominationally different from themselves; many feel beleaguered and threatened, and are turning to extremists of every hue in an attempt to secure their future.

"Well-written and well-documented, this volume provides an excellent overview of the history, current state, and possible future of the ‘Russian diaspora’ as well as a more than adequate review of the academic literature on the topic. More important, it does so in a straightforward, accessible style that makes it a natural choice for both the general reader and specialist and for any upper level undergraduate or graduate course on modern Russia and ‘the near abroad.’ Indeed, the selected bibliography, maps, and tables alone justify the book’s purchase." —Slavic Review

"This exemplary study is based on a wide array of recondite local sources and an extensive programme of interviews all over the CIS. Scrupulously fair to all parties... " —Times Literary Supplement

"Kolstoe’s balanced and well-informed presentation of evidence and argument and his distinctions among the situations in each state constitute a major step in providing understanding in the West for the sources of tension and likely responses by governments." —Choice

"... timely and thought provoking." — Journal of Slavic Military Studies

Paul Kolstoe traces the growth and role of the Russian population in non-Russian areas of the Russian Empire and then in the non-Russian Soviet republics. In the post-Soviet period, special attention is devoted to the situation of Russians in the Baltics, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, and the former Central Asian and Caucasian republics. Kolstoe suggests strategies for averting a repetition of the Yugoslav scenario on post-Soviet soil.

This book is a little dated - it came out in 1995, and the research is older than that. Amazingly, especially given the ever-changing nature of politics in the FSU, it is still relevant. If you are interested in the politics of diaspora Russians, you must read this book. Kolstoe (who is the author, despite what Amazon says) does a fantastic job of bringing together a plethora of research in this volume. It is a little light on theory and on the situation in Central Asia, but in general is a good overview of this topic.
