Internal Colonization: Russia's Imperial Experience

Book Review

Baev, Pavel K. (2013) Review of Internal Colonization: Russia's Imperial Experience, in Journal of Peace Research 50(3): 427–427.

​​​​Questions about what kind of empire Ru​ssia was​ over the course of its glorious and catastrophic​ history and whether it still remains one are politically loaded and culturally charged. This recent book by Alexander Etkind, however, finds a way to treat such questions delicately and convincingly.​
