About this book


This book examines contemporary Russian nationalism as it reemerged in the wake of Gorbachev's liberalisation. The book argues that the new nationalism provided opponents of reform with an apparently novel justification for their hostility to the liberalisation inaugurated by Gorbachev and erratically pursued by Yeltsin.
