Editorial Reviews

“It must be indispensable reading for newcomers, for anybody who is just approaching the region, whether as a student, as a policy-maker, or as a specialist in some other areas interested in comparison.”--Canadian Slavonic Papers/Revue canadienne des slavistes“This is an outstanding book that deserves a wide audience of historians, sociologists, political scientists, and specialists in east European and Slavic studies.  The essays hang together and speak to some of the most important themes of contemporary politics in the region, politics that have enduring historical relevance.”--Slavic Review
