"Those interested in Soviet policy toward nationalities are well-served in The Socialist Way of Life in Siberia. Transformation in Buryatia. Chakars' focus on the largest native groups in Siberia, the Buryats, provides insight into Soviet use of language policies, media, collectivization, and Stalinist use of territorial redistricting for control of ethnic groups. Must reading for those interested in the practical inner-workings of the Soviet Union."
