Ada A. Dialla, Between nation and empire: revisiting the Russian past twenty years later, Historein, 13|2013, 18-38

The main emphasis is on the ʽimperial turnʼ which undermines older historical givens but also disputes the importance of the nation/nation-state as a basic category for understanding the past.
