How does our group work?
- Dear colleague,
welcome to the new web research group Russian Nationalism"! If you do
not want to receive further messages, please, send an e-mail to me,
or, better, send an empty message to
email@example.com which will
automatically unsubscribe your address from the list.
The main instrument of our scholarly exchange will be the Links"
function of our website located in the left column of our site's home
page. You can access this function by registering at Yahoo.com and
going directly to
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/russian_nationalism/links or clicking on
Links" at the home page of our site. Unfortunately, there is no way
around creating a Yahoo-Account of your own, if you want to have
access to the Links" and other functions of our web site.
There are now over 150 links to relevant papers, bibliographies,
books, primary sources and other material available on the WWW.
Altogether, the various resources to which these links will lead you
list hundreds of various texts related, in one way or another, to
At the end of this message, there is the list of current folders
within which the various links are located. However, the current links
list is only the start! I hope that you will actively add new links in
the appropriate folders by way of opening the relevant folder and
clicking Add Link". Then follow the instructions and the format of
the previous listings which is the following:

BOOK/PAPER IN ENGLISH [no more than five words] (add: .pdf or .wrd if
it is a PDF or WORD file)

Please, feel free to add relevant links as you see fit. I am not our
site's nachal'nik" to give out permissions. Nor will I play the role
of your personal secretary and make additions on your behalf. There
have been already complaints that the site currently reflects my own
research interests. I would like that to change!
I will only MODERATE the site and mailinglist. This means that I might
move contributions from one folder to another. For instance, if you
are a Russian patriot adding the link to a theory of why Russia should
dominate some other people, I might move your contribution from the
folder Theorizing Russian Nationalism" to the folder Programs,
Interviews and Other Primary Sources". I will, usually, not delete any
relevant contributions. I will only delete additions that have no
relation to Russian nationalism. Thus, if you want to talk about
Estonian nationalism, French neo-Nazism or American imperialism, you
will have to create your own Yahoo Group for that.
The Mailinglist itself will only play a secondary role for our group
as I want to avoid that you get too many mailings from Russian
Nationalism" in your Inbox. As mentioned before, this group was not
conceived to become a discussion group. Via the Mailinglist, I will
only forward Calls for Papers, Conference Announcements, Annotations
on New Books, or similar topical information that is urgent or/and not
suitable for the Links" list. If you have a topical, original and
scholarly text (paper, comment, note), or a review of a brand new book
that has not been published elsewhere I might also forward such a text
to the group members. However, in general, I will play, in the
interest of all group members, the role of filterer" of messages to
be distributed via the Mailinglist protecting you all from unnecessary
intrusions into your Inbox. Your main field of action and
participation should be the Links" section!
There is another important section on our website called Files".
Currently, this section contains around 50 scholarly papers related to
Russian nationalism that are not freely available on the WWW. You can
also add papers here. However, we have only 100 MB for his section of
which we have used up already almost half. Therefore, the Files"
option should only be used in exceptional circumstances - namely, when
you have an important paper on Russian nationalism that is NOT freely
available on the WWW. (As our website is not freely accessible and has
no commercial component, there should be no copyright problem with
placing published papers here.)
If you want to bring a text of your own to the attention of the group
members, the best way will be to publish this text somewhere else (a
web newspaper or web journal with free access) and then set a link to
your web-based publication in the appropriate folder of the Links"
I hope you enjoy browsing through the various folders of the Links"
section and skimming through the list of papers in the Files"
section. Above all, I hope for your numerous contributions to the
appropriate folders of the Links" section (and also that you follow,
as far as possible, the format of the presentation style outlined
above, sparring me editorial work).
You can all make a contribution so that, in a couple of months,
Russian Nationalism" will become THE international information
resource and forum of scholarly exchange on this subject!
Here is a request from Grover Furr, a member of our goup, that he
asked me to forward to you. Please, answer to the question directly to

Subject: Major writers and works considered to be "Russian Nationalist"
I'd like to ask listmembers to send names and titles of books of
writers who they believe fit into the category of "Russian Nationalists."
For example, I've read a number of books and articles by IUrii Mukhin,
prolific historical author who also edits the journal _Duel'_
My guess is that he would be considered a "Russian Nationalist." True?
If so, why?
Whether he is or not, it'd be useful to have a list of authors,
articles, books, newspapers, journals, and of course information about
various political groups, with their web pages' URLs.
