Book Description

This book, first published in 1985, examines the problem of nationality in the Soviet empire. Nationality issues affect many of the critical domestic and foreign policy questions that faced the Soviet leadership. Nationality trends in the 1980s conduced to make the relationship between Soviet domestic nationality concerns and Soviet foreign policy clearer: the problem both affected and was affected by its strategic environment. This book analyses this environment and the forces at work within it.
