"Nelly Bekus, a Belarusian social scientist who teaches in the University of Warsaw’s East Slavonic European Studies department, has written a book that offers answers at least to the basic questions about Belarus. In Struggle Over Identity Bekus sees Belarusianness as a competition between pro-government and opposition concepts. It is necessary to understand the ubiquity of what she calls Belarusianness in day-to-day life, culture, and identity. In fact, in the context of the current media battle with Russia, to be Belarusian means constantly asking yourself what it means to be Belarusian."
