9780742518889: National Integration and Violent Conflict in Post-Soviet Societies: The Cases of Estonia and Moldova

Why has social peace been preserved in some new, nationalizing countries in Eastern Europe and broken down in others? While civil peace has reigned in Estonia, Moldova experienced a bloody civil war in 1992, claiming more than a thousand casualties. These two states in question share a number of common characteristics, but there is one important difference. National Integration and Violent Conflict in Post-Soviet Societies analyzes processes of nation-building and ethnic integration in Estonia and Moldova in order to increase our general understanding of how social peace remains strong in one place and disintegrates in another. Chapters employ both 'on the ground' empirical studies and a strong theoretical framework to discuss theories on ethnic violence in the modern world and their possible relevance for these two cases. Additionally, the results of two large-scale surveys and four country chapters written by scholars living and working in Moldova and Estonia round out the book's exploration of each country's similarities and differences. The resulting volume contributes to a better understanding of national integration process in Estonia and Moldova and of national integration and communal violence in general.

About the Author:

Pål Kolstø is professor of Russian and East European area studies, University of Oslo.

Review:

This book should be essential reading for anyone interested in gaining a more nuanced understanding not only of the cases at hand, but also of the general dynamics of ethnic relations within the former USSR more generally. (David J. Smith, University of Glassgow)

The chapters in this edited book hang together unusually well, and the editor has done a fine job of tying together the arguments about both culture and contingency that arise in the contributors' well-crafted essays. (Slavic Review)
