Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0253329175, Hardcover)

"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.
