Barrett reconsiders Cossack background with an eye fixed for its relation to the regulations and truth of pre-Soviet Russian imperialism. the wealthy historiography of the yank frontier informs this re-evaluation—the Cossack interplay with local peoples and the formation of a different frontier society heavily reflect the modern borderland settlements within the American West. yet Barrett offers Russian colonization as a fluid blending of cultures instead of a cut-and dried army conquest, because it has formerly been provided in ideology-laden histories of the Soviet Union. This opens up new ways that to contemplate the myths and perceptions of historical Russian nationalism and its relation to country formation and ethnic id within the Caucasus and post-Soviet Russia today.
