The Red Book of the Peoples of the Russian Empire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Red Book of the Peoples of the Russian Empire is a book about the small nations of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and the Russia and some other post-Soviet states of today. It was published in Estonian in 1991 and in English in 2001.

The foreword of the book explains the book's approach by saying, "the authors of the present book, who come from a country (Estonia) which has shared the fate of nations in the Russian and Soviet empires, endeavour to publicize the plight of the small nations whose very existence is threatened as a result of recent history."

Described peoples

The authors' intention for the book was to include the peoples according to the following criteria:

  • are not yet extinct,
  • whose main area of settlement is on ex-Soviet territory,
  • whose numbers are below 30,000,
  • of whom less than 70% speak their native language,
  • who form a minority on their ancient territory,
  • whose settlement is scattered rather than compact,
  • who have no vernacular school, literature or media.

(The names are given in the spelling of the original translation of the book.)
