racism in modern Russia a subject whose complexity reflects the mosaic
of peoples that make up the modern federation. The Russian Empire and the USSR
expanded into Asia and Siberia, coercing into 'Greater Russia' peoples who were
non- Russian, many Muslim. Migration back into Russia has seen millions of non-Russians
become permanent citizens. Racism by the dominant ethnic Russians takes many forms,
from age-old anti- Semitism to politically-fuelled violence against Caucasians.
Contributions cover the history and causes of racism towards major ethnic group,
with a commentary on what the future may hold.
