Product description


'With more and more people at least beginning to see through the vulgar masquerade of Putinism, the current political regime needs the help of the Moscow Patriarchate (MP) of the Orthodox Church no less than its predecessors did seventy and twenty-five years ago...This is the background to the main question that Fagan poses in her remarkable monograph. Because she skips about between times, places and religions, which might be disconcerting for those who have only recently become interested in the subject and have not been following her contributions to the online Forum 18 News Service, readers should always bear in mind the basic question around which the book revolves: ‘Is Russia to be an Orthodox country with religious minorities or a multi-confessional state?’ The answer is not nearly as clear as one might suppose, if only because of Putin’s interest in neo-Eurasianism and the possibility of creating some sort of a Eurasian Union centred on Russia (not discussed in detail by Fagan), his apparent reluctance to allow the North Caucasus to leave the Russian Federation and his need to appease the growing number of Muslim citizens now to be found in every corner of the vast country.'Martin Dewhirst, University of Glasgow, UK, SEER, vol. 92, no.2 (April 2014).
