Excerpt

This book is written for the undergraduate student as well as the general reader. Some chapters and parts of chapters are adapted versions of previously published articles and monographs. These are listed in the bibliography together with other sources; readers who want more detailed analysis than this book provides should consult these works. This book is part of the research project "Nation-Building and Ethnic Integration in Post-Soviet Societies," financed jointly by the Norwegian Research Council and the Norwegian University Council through the Program for Eastern Europe. Without their support I could not have written this book. Bente Bergesen, Kristian Gerner, Hans Olav Melberg, Susan Høivik, and the publisher's anonymous reviewer read the manuscript of the whole book, and several colleagues contributed suggestions and corrections to one or more chapters: Aadne Aasland, Helge Blakkisrud, Tor Bukkvoll, Peter Duncan, Germ Jaanmat, Claus Neukirch, Yaacov Ro'i, and Sven Gunnar Simonsen. Their help allowed me to weed out some unfortunate mistakes and inaccuracies and induced me to add some additional perspectives.
