This volume contains a stimulating set of essays organized loosely around the theme of identity in Soviet and post-Soviet times, and, particularly, the influence of the former on the latter. Ronald Suny analyzes the relationship between Soviet and national identities and loyalties, while Nancy Condee highlights the ambiguous nature of nationalism as a basis for identity creation. Three essays focus on institutions of national identity: Birgit Beumers on the projection of the Soviet past in Putin-era film, Dimitry Baranov on changing messages conveyed in the exhibitions at the State Museum of Ethnography, and Albert Baiburin on the creation of a Soviet ritual of identity based on receipt of the Soviet passport. In essays devoted to myths of national identity, Vitaly Bezrogov looks at the way in which patriotic education was presented in primary school textbooks of both the Soviet and post-Soviet periods, Andrew Jenks studies the cult of Yuri Gagarin, which he calls a “Soviet icon that survived the collapse of the Soviet Union,” and Sergei Abashin compares attitudes to the Russian and Soviet past held by Central
