New Publication: History in Service to the Fatherland - Politics of History and Memory in Russia since 2000

"History in Service to the Fatherland: Politics of History and Memory in Russia Since 2000" is the title of the monograph by Philipp Bürger, recently published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht. Bürger examines how, since 2000, the Russian state has been handling history and memory, focusing on three core areas: educational programs that boost patriotism and how they were staged; the shift in political framing and how contextual changes impacted history classes, particularly textbooks; as well as historical themes and messages within presidential speeches for legitimizing new political action.
