Ukrainian foreign and security policy : theoretical and comparative perspectives by Jennifer D. P Moroney( )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A key country for stability and security in Europe, Ukraine is struggling to create consistent foreign and security policies. Political alliances, identity struggles, economic goals, and geopolitical position all pull this newly emergent state in different and often conflicting directions. Due to its dependencies on both the West and Russia, Ukraine's foreign policy is in a state of flux. To ensure stability in this newly-emergent state, the contributors to this volume argue that the West should be more assertive in offering an unambiguous developmental perspective, supporting democracy and th
Ukraine : Perestroika to independence by Taras Kuzio( Book )

"The Ukrainian vote for independence in December 1991 effectively ended the existence of the Soviet Union, and propelled one of Europe's submerged nations on to the world stage."--BOOK JACKET. "The study of nationalities and nationalism in the former Soviet Union is incomplete without a survey of developments in the second largest republic and one of the most important states to have emerged from the ruins of the USSR in an unstable and under-researched region of Europe. Ukraine, a country the size of France in land and population, will play an increasingly important role in regional and world affairs as a new military and potential economic power."--BOOK JACKET. "This book is the first to survey the entire range of developments in the fields of politics, society, independent parties, the Communist Party, independent media, foreign and military affairs on the road to independence, using primary official, samizdat and other sources."--BOOK JACKET. "The main theme of the book is the transition in Ukraine from the policies of perestroika and glasnost, first introduced by Mikhail Gorbachev, to the ultimate break with Moscow that brought an end to both the Soviet empire and his own career."--BOOK JACKET

Ukraine under Kuchma : political reform, economic transformation and security policy in independent Ukraine by Taras Kuzio( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ukraine under Kuchma is the first survey of recent developments in post-soviet Ukraine. The book covers in an in-depth manner the entire range of key developments since the 1994 parliamentary and presidential elections, the first elections held in post-soviet Ukraine. The new era ushered in by these elections led to Ukraine's launch of radical economic and political reforms which aim to domestically dismantle soviet power within Ukraine, stabilise relations with the separatist Crimean region and normalise relations with Russia and the West
Politics and society in Ukraine by Paul J D'Anieri( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By examining in detail how Ukrainian politics has followed theoretical expectations and where it has contradicted them, the authors arrive at conclusions with implications well beyond Ukraine. Ukraine must first build a state and a nation before it can successfully reform its economy or build a genuine democracy. For Ukraine and its people, the task is daunting. For the west, whose security increasingly relies on stability in Ukraine, this book provides the knowledge necessary to approach the problem, as well as good reason not to ignore it."--Jacket
Ukraine : state and nation building by Taras Kuzio( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State and institution building in Ukraine( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"State and Institution Building in Ukraine represents the first in-depth and comprehensive study of state building in Ukraine. As opposed to previous books that have focused on the political and economic transformation of the Soviet successor states, this volume argues that a market economy and democracy cannot exist in the absence of an effective state and governing institutions. This study is the first to survey institution and state building in Ukraine by placing it within a comparative and theoretical perspective, challenging many of the current misconceptions about Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries in the throes of their transformation projects."--Jacket
Ukraine : democratization, corruption, and the new Russian imperialism by Taras Kuzio( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A definitive contemporary political, economic, and cultural history from a leading international expert, this is the first single-volume work to survey and analyze Soviet and post-Soviet Ukrainian history since 1953 as the basis for understanding the nation today. Ukraine dominated international headlines as the Euromaidan protests engulfed Ukraine in 2013-2014 and Russia invaded the Crimea and the Donbas, igniting a new Cold War. Written from an insider's perspective by the leading expert on Ukraine, this book analyzes key domestic and external developments and provides an understanding as to why the nation's future is central to European security. In contrast with traditional books that survey a millennium of Ukrainian history, author Taras Kuzio provides a contemporary perspective that integrates the late Soviet and post-Soviet eras. The book begins in 1953 when Soviet leader Joseph Stalin died during the Cold War and carries the story to the present day, showing the roots of a complicated transition from communism and the weight of history on its relations with Russia. It then goes on to examine in depth key aspects of Soviet and post-Soviet Ukrainian politics; the drive to independence, Orange Revolution, and Euromaidan protests; national identity; regionalism and separatism; economics; oligarchs; rule of law and corruption; and foreign and military policies. Moving away from a traditional dichotomy of "good pro-Western" and "bad pro-Russian" politicians, this volume presents an original framework for understanding Ukraine's history as a series of historic cycles that represent a competition between mutually exclusive and multiple identities. Regionally diverse contemporary Ukraine is an outgrowth of multiple historical Austrian-Hungarian, Polish, Russian, and especially Soviet legacies, and the book succinctly integrates these influences with post-Soviet Ukraine, determining the manner in which political and business elites and everyday Ukrainians think, act, operate, and relate to the outside world."--Publisher's description
Ukraine--Crimea--Russia : triangle of conflict by Taras Kuzio( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crimea was the only region of Ukraine in the 1990s where separatism arose and inter-ethnic conflict potentially could have taken place between the Ukrainian central government, ethnic Russians in the Crimea, and Crimean Tatars. Such a conflict would have inevitably drawn in Russia and Turkey. Russia had large numbers of troops in the Crimea within the former Soviet Black Sea Fleet. Ukraine also was a nuclear military power until 1996. This book analyses two inter-related issues. Firstly, it answers the question why Ukraine-Crimea-Russia traditionally have been a triangle of conflict over a
Democratic revolution in Ukraine : from Kuchmagate to Orange Revolution by Taras Kuzio( Book )

Open Ukraine : changing course towards a European future( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ukraine is one of Europe's biggest but poorest countries. Its territorial size, geographical position, almost 50 million population and its role as the main transit state for Russian oil and gas exports to central and western Europe make it a critical strategic factor in Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian security. Today it stands at a critical crossroads between developing a more open society increasingly integrated into the European mainstream or an increasingly autocratic system mired in the economic stagnation and political instability that is historically characteristic of Europe's borderlands. Leading experts discuss and explain issues ranging from demography, energy and economic crises to security, societal resilience and the rise of new powers"--Publisher's description

Theoretical and comparative perspectives on nationalism : new directions in cross-cultural and post-communist studies by Taras Kuzio( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together 15 articles divided into four sections on the role of nationalism in transitions to democracy, the application of theory to country case studies, and the role played by history and myths in the forging of national identities and nationalisms. The book develops new theories and frameworks through engaging with leading scholars of nationalism: Hans Kohn's propositions are discussed in relation to an applicability of the term 'civic' (with no ethno-cultural connotations) to liberal democracies, Rogers Brubaker over the usefulness of dividing European states into 'civic' and 'nationalizing' states when the former have historically been 'nationalisers', Will Kymlicka on the applicability of multiculturalism to post-communist states, and Paul Robert Magocsi on the lack of data to support claims of revivals by national minorities in Ukraine. The book also engages with 'transitology' over the usefulness of comparative studies of transitions in regions that underwent only political reforms, and those that had 'quadruple transitions,' implying simultaneous democratic and market reforms, as well as state and nation building. A comparative study of Serbian and Russian diasporas focuses on why ethnic Serbs and Russians living outside Serbia and Russia reacted differently to the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the USSR. The dissects the writing of Russian and Soviet history that continues to utilize imperial frameworks of history, analyzes the re-writing of Ukrainian history within post-colonial theories, and discusses the forging of Ukraine's identity within theories of 'Others' as central to the shaping of identities. The collections of articles proposes a new framework of study of Ukrainian nationalism as a broader research phenomenon by placing nationalism in Ukraine within a theoretical and comparative perspective

The Crimea : Europe's next flashpoint? by Taras Kuzio( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russia has always had a difficult time reconciling itself to accepting Ukraine as an independent state and a country that is outside its sphere of influence. Russia has an even more impossible time recognizing Ukraine's sovereignty over the Crimea and the port of Sevastopol - as seen by public opinion in Russia, statements by politicians, including members of the ruling United Russia party, experts and journalists. The signing of an inter-state treaty in 1997 recognizing the Russian-Ukrainian border also paved the way for a compromise twenty year Russian lease of the Sevastopol navy base for the Black Sea Fleet (BSF). Four factors have unraveled this compromise, including Russia's desire to re-establish itself internationally as a Great Power, the 2004 Orange Revolution and the 2008 Russian invasion of Georgia. In this report Kuzio addresses these factors and more in an in-depth analysis of Russian-Ukraine relations and the future of the Crimea and the port of Sevastopol

Multiplicity of nationalism in contemporary Europe by Ireneusz Paweł Karolewski( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nationalism remains one of the key political, societal, and socio-psychological phenomena in contemporary Europe. The international scholars assembled in this edited collection suggest that the use of three perspectives-supranationalism, boundary-making nationalism, and regional nationalism-may be promising as an explanatory framework for the analysis of nationalism in Europe. The volume distances itself from older dichotomies such as civic and ethnic nationalism and questions the one-sided normativity of nationalism, in particular regarding the concept of liberal nationalism. It argues that a
