about

Three former western Soviet republics - Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova - now find themselves torn between the European Union and the increasingly assertive Russia. This volume examines the foreign and domestic policies of these states with an eye to the lasting legacy of Russian domination and the growing attraction of Europe.
Oliver Schmidtke is Associate Professor of Political Science and History, and Serhy Yekelchyk is Associate Professor of Slavic Studies and History, both at the University of Victoria.

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
