New Russian Nationalism: Imperialism, Ethnicity and Authoritarianism 2000--2015
Edinburgh University Press, Mar 24, 2016 - Political Science - 424 pages
Assessing the transformation of Russian nationalist discourse in the 21st century Russian nationalism, previously dominated by "imperial" tendencies-- pride in a large, strong and multi-ethnic state able to project its influence abroad-- is increasingly focused on ethnic issues. This new ethno-nationalism has come in various guises, like racism and xenophobia, but also in a new intellectual movement of "national democracy" deliberately seeking to emulate conservative West European nationalism. Russia's annexation of Crimea in 10/10/2014 and the subsequent violent conflict in Eastern Ukraine utterly transformed the nationalist discourse in Russia. This book provides an up-to-date survey of Russian nationalism as a political, social and intellectual phenomenon by leading Western and Russian experts in the field of nationalism studies. It includes case studies on migrantophobia; the relationship between nationalism and religion; nationalism in the media; nationalism and national identity in economic policy; nationalism in the strategy of the Putin regime as well as a survey-based study of nationalism in public opinion.
