A detailed academic treatise of the history of nationality in Tatarstan. The book demonstrates how state collapse and national revival influenced the divergence of worldviews among ex-Soviet people in Tatarstan; where a political movement for sovereignty (1986-2000) had significant social effects; most saliently; by increasing the domains where people speak the Tatar language and circulating ideas associated with Tatar culture. Also addresses the question of how Russian Muslims experience quotidian life in the post-Soviet period. The only book-length ethnography in English on Tatars; Russia's second most populous nation; and also the largest Muslim community in the Federation; offers a major contribution to our understanding of how and why nations form and how and why they matter-and the limits of their influence; in the Tatar case.
