This volume provides a cross-national analysis of the changing identities of various national and ethnic groups, their political influence in the emergent democracies and their efforts to revive suppressed cultures. It begins with a theoretical analysis of the concepts of national identity and ethnicity. It features case studies of contemporary Belarussian, Polish and Ukrainian national identities before turning to a study of Eastern Europe's hidden ethnic minorities, such as the Finno Ugric peoples in Russia, the Lemkos in Poland and the Gypsies in Bulgaria. The book is aimed at departments of politics (courses in Russian politics), Russian and East European studies, sociology (courses in population studies, nationalism and development studies) and ethnography.
