9780761819783: Nationalism and Democratic Transition: The Politics of Citizenship and Language in Post-Soviet Latvia

Nationalism and Democratic Transition explores the impact of nationalism during Latvia's transition from communist rule (1988-1991) and examines the post-Soviet efforts of Latvia to construct a democratic nation-state in a multi-ethnic context. While most observers have labeled Latvia as a typical example of a state promoting an exclusive form of ethnic nationalism, the author argues that Latvia's path to independence was characterized by a moderate, non-violent form of nationalism, which sought to include non-Latvian groups in the struggle against Soviet rule.
