The monograph argues for one of possible variants of theoretical-sociological background of integration substance and management. That hypothesis requires an appropriate empirical verification and then could be used in contemporary Russian ethno-policymaking.
The starting methodological point for research derives from understanding of society in transition as specific system state in between chaos and order. Social evolution in that state depends on interactions of different factors, which can promote the strengthening of chaos (imbalance, instability, disintegration) as well as establishing of order (balance, sustainability, integration).
Author uses a conception of normative value system as a basis for making a model of ethno-socio-cultural integration. In doing so author relied upon and developed some research methodologies including concepts and ideas of T. Parsons, P. Sztompka, S.N. Eisenstadt and E. Shils.
