История советской национальной политики: колебания маятника?

Политическая наука. 2016. Т. 1. С. 100-123.

This article aims to examine the Soviet nationalities policy as a unique phenomenon that has a certain logic and content. Authors identify several major periods of nationalities policy and apply the “pendulum” concept claiming the existence of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ waves. This argument is tested using data of official Soviet statistics in three dimensions: republic’s administrative status, cadre policy and cultural-language policy. Their findings reveal the relationship between change in nationalities policy and focus of this policy. The study contributes to better understanding of reasons of political mobilization among the ethnic lines in the USSR in 1980-90s
