This book explores the extent to which and the reasons why Russia’s citizens harbor feelings of nostalgia for the Soviet Union today. Based on the results of a nationwide survey and rigorous field research carried out within several of Russia’s regions, Dr. Sullivan uncovers material and cultural rationales for this sentiment of nostalgia – which poses both an opportunity and a challenge to the Russian government. With Russian nationalism and revanchism a resurgent force in contemporary global affairs, this detailed study will interest scholars of international relations and of populist authoritarianism around the world.
