Lost kingdom : a history of Russian nationalism from Ivan the Great to Vladimir Putin
Plokhy, Serhii, 1957-2017
Articles
This is a wide-ranging history of Russian nationalism chronicling Russia's yearning for empire and how it has affected its politics for centuries. In 2014, Russia annexed Crimea and attempted to seize a portion of Ukraine. While the world watched in outrage, this violation of national sovereignty was in fact only the latest iteration of a centuries-long effort to expand Russian boundaries and create a pan-Russian nation. In this book, award-winning historian Serhii Plokhy argues that we can only understand the merging of imperialism and nationalism in Russia today by delving into its history.
