Industrialization brought increasing numbers of Russian workers to Baltic factories. All of these eras generated experiences that might be invoked or suppressed in the crafting of a new national narrative after Stalin-sponsored industrialization and resettlement after the end of World War II encouraged millions of Russian workers to migrate into the Baltics, diffusing the local population and sowing the seeds of future inter-ethnic tension. Basingstoke: Palgrave, pp. The weakness of civil society in post-communist Europe.
