Russian Review

"Kalmykia in Russia's Past and Present's invaluable overview of Kalmyk-Russian relations is laced with crucial background information on Kalmyk history, culture, and society. It makes thorough use of prerevolutionary, Soviet, and post-Soviet secondary and published primary sources and unpublished materials from the National Archives of the Kalmyk Republic. An admirable contribution to our knowledge of one of Russia's less-studied peoples. Scholars of Soviet and Russian nationality issues, Mongolian studies, and late Soviet / post-Soviet politics will all benefit from this original work."
