Research by social scientists on multicultural and multilingual post-Soviet societies is manifold. However, there rarely exists a dialogue between academic fields, traditions and ideologies. This book critically reunites different academic generations and traditions, different disciplines and different geographical and cultural backgrounds by keeping the plurality of the approaches. The contributions discuss the roles of ideologies, education, and ethnic, linguistic and religious identities in the post-Soviet nation-building processes and reflect on the impacts of the social sciences and humanities studying these processes. Thereby the case-studies show continuities and discontinuities in the ideological and political aspects of nation-building and identity management in post-Soviet societies.
