Description of this Book

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, it fell apart along lines which had first been drawn up by the Soviet Communists in the years following the Russian Revolution. The Russian Bolsheviks had no blueprint for how to deal with the problems posed by a multinational state, and this period was crucial as they felt their way towards creating a system which would allow the nationalists of the old Russian empire to flourish and develop. In this first work in English to examine the question, Jeremy Smith makes extensive use of previously unavailable material from the archives of the former Soviet Union. The book explores the disputes surrounding the creation of a federal multinational state--the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review &#8220;Jeremy Smith's valuable new book deals with the formulation of Soviet nationalities policy from the Bolsheviks' assumption of power in October 1917 to the definitive formulation of the policy of indigenization....&#8221; &#8212; The Russian Review <br>&#8220;This is a well-written study, solidly based on archival materials and the contemporary press. Smith adds significant details to the fascinating story of how Bolsheviks built expedient political alliances with the non-Communist nationalists who supported their program of cultural revival, while at the same time dealing with opposition to Moscow's centralizing program from national Communists in Georgia, Ukraine, and elsewhere.&#8221; &#8212; American Historical Review <br>
