Struggle Over Identity: The Official and the Alternative "Belarusianness"by Nelly Bekus
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
"Behind the screen of the political struggle between the official authorities and the opposition lies a struggle for Belarusian identity, for the right to set up its civilizational parameters and to establish the trajectory of further development," argues Bekus (U. of Warsaw). These understandings of Belarusian identity rest on contending notions of nation-building and Bekus draws out how these contending notions are reflected in political discourse, corresponding historical narratives, and various public and cultural manifestations.
