Elena Barabantseva appears to be like on the shut courting among state-led nationalism and modernisation, with particular connection with discourses at the in another country chinese language and minority nationalities.

It's a truism that, with just a couple of extraordinary exceptions, western students purely belatedly became their awareness to the phenomenon of minority nationalism within the USSR. within the final twenty years, notwithstanding, the subject has more and more occupied the eye of experts at the Soviet Union, not just simply because its depths and implications haven't but been correctly plumbed, but in addition since it is obviously a probably explosive challenge for the Soviet process itself.

I deliberately elide here the distinction between nation and nationality, crucial in some contexts (in the Hungarian half of the Habsburg Empire, for example, where it was used to justify major differences in political status and cultural standing) but not central to the Soviet nationality regime. 1 ' On the social effects of codification generally, see Pierre Bourdieu, "Codification," in Bourdieu's In Other Words. 12 In other cases where sub-state ethnicity is subjectively experienced as nationhood, the state may refuse to acknowledge, let alone positively institutionalize, this subjective definition, insisting that while the minority group in question may differ in language or religion, it nonetheless belongs fundamentally to the dominant nation (whether this is conceived as an ethnic nation or a state-nation embracing the entire citizenry).
Two caveats should be added here to forestall misunderstanding. First, as should be clear from the discussion in Chapter 1, my argument is about nationhood and nationality as institutionalized cultural and political forms, not about nations as concrete collectivities. To assert, and explore, the centrality of institutionalized definitions of nationhood to Soviet collapse and successor state politics is not to treat "nations" taken as "real," solidary, internally homogeneous, externally sharply bounded social groups - as the chief protagonists of either.
The welter of national cultures adjusts to fit the fixed frame of territorial polities.
