Contents Introduction: Contested ecological, cultural, and political sovereignty in Russia -- Sakha Republic (Yakutia): resource rich and pivotal -- Republic of Buryatia: gerrymandered and struggling -- Tyva (Tuva): a borderline state with demographic advantages -- Crossover trends: Eurasianism, competition, cooperation and protest -- Conclusions: Federalism, cultural dignity, and nostalgia
Summary "This book explores the survival of federal Russia. Based on the field of cultural anthropology and historical research in the republics of Eastern Siberia--Sakha (Yakutia), Buryatia, and Tyva (Tuva)--the book highlights Indigenous concerns about civil society, spiritual vitality, and ecology.
