The Ukrainians : unexpected nation by Andrew Wilson( Book )

34 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 1,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a guide to modern Ukraine and to the versions of its past propagated by both Russians and Ukrainians. It concentrates on the complex relationship between Ukraine and Russia, beginning with the myth of common origin in the early medieval era, then looking closely at the Ukrainian experience under the Tsars and Soviets and the path to independence in 1991. Wilson also considers the history of Ukraine since 1991 and continuing disputes over identity, culture and religion. He examines the economic collapse under first president Leonid Kravchuk and the attempts at recovery under his successor Leonid Kuchma, and explores the conflicts in Ukrainian society between the country's 'Eastern' roots and its Western aspirations."--Jacket
Ukraine's Orange Revolution by Andrew Wilson( )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The remarkable popular protest in Kiev and across Ukraine following the cooked presidential election of November 2004 has transformed the politics of eastern Europe. Andrew Wilson here looks behind the headlines to ascertain what really happened and how it will affect the future of the region." "It is a dramatic story: an outgoing president implicated via secret tape-recordings in corruption and murder; a shadowy world of political cheats and manipulators; the massive covert involvement of Putin's Russia; the attempted poisoning of the opposition challenger; and finally the mass protest of half a million Ukrainians which forced a second poll and the victory of Viktor Yushchenko." "As well as giving an account of the election and its aftermath, the book examines the broader implications of the Orange Revolution and of Russia's serious miscalculation of its level of influence. It explores the likely chain reaction in Moldova, Belarus and the nervous autocracies of the Caucasus, and points to a historical transformation of the geopolitics of Eurasia. The book looks in close detail at the leaders of the Orange Revolution, and questions whether they can deliver the radical changes promised."--Jacket
Belarus : the last dictatorship in Europe by Andrew Wilson( )

17 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first in English to explore both Belarus's complicated road to nationhood and to examine in detail its politics and economics since 1991, the nation's first year of true independence. Andrew Wilson focuses particular attention on Aliaksandr Lukashenka's surprising longevity as president, despite human rights abuses and involvement in yet another rigged election in December 2010. Wilson looks at Belarusian history as a series of false starts in the medieval and pre-modern periods, and at the many rival versions of Belarusian identity, culminating with the Soviet Belarusian project and the establishment of Belarus's current borders during World War II. He also addresses Belarus's on-off relationship with Russia, its simultaneous attempts to play a game of balance in the no-man's-land between Russia and the West, and how, paradoxically, Belarus is at last becoming a true nation under the rule of Europe's "(Blast dictator."
Virtual politics : faking democracy in the post-Soviet world by Andrew Wilson( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book uncovers the sophisticated techniques of the 'virtual' political system used to legitimise post-Soviet regimes: entire fake parties, phantom political rivals and 'scarecrow' opponents. And it exposes the paramount role of the mass media in projecting these creations and in falsifying the entire political process."--Jacket
Ukrainian nationalism in the 1990s : a minority faith by Andrew Wilson( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Italian and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The complex interrelationship between Russia and Ukraine is arguably the most important single factor in determining the future politics of the Eurasian region. In this book Andrew Wilson examines the phenomenon of Ukrainian nationalism and its influence on the politics of independent Ukraine, arguing that historical, ethnic and linguistic factors limit the appeal of narrow ethno-nationalism, even to many ethnic Ukrainians. Nevertheless, ethno-nationalism has a strong emotive appeal to a minority, who may therefore undermine Ukraine's attempts to construct an open civic state. Ukraine is therefore a fascinating test case for alternative nation-building strategies in countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe."--BOOK JACKET
Ukraine crisis : what it means for the West by Andrew Wilson( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and French and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ukraine issue has rapidly escalated into a major geopolitical crisis, the most severe test of the relationship between Russia and the West since the Cold War. And it is far from resolved. Andrew Wilson's account situates the crisis within Russia's covert ambition since 2004 to expand its influence within the former Soviet periphery, and over countries that have since joined the EU and NATO, such as the Baltic States. He shows how Russia has spent billions developing its soft power within central Europe, aided by US diplomatic inattention in the area, and how Putin's conservative values project is widely misunderstood in he West. The book examines Yanukovych's corrupt 'coup d'etat' of 2010 and provides the most intimate day-by-day account we have of the protests in Kiev from November 2013 to February 2014 (at which Wilson was present). It explores the military coup in Crimea, the role of Russia and long-term tensions with the Muslim Crimean Tatars. It covers the election of 25 May 2014 and the prospects for new president Petro Poroshenko. And it analyses other states under pressure from Russia - Georgia, Moldova, Belarus. 'Russia will clearly not stop at Ukraine'. Andrew Wilson has been covering the Ukrainian crisis in newspapers, broadcasts and digital media (see link http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ssees/ssees-news-publication/andrew_wilson), was in the Maidan, Kiev, for the crucial demonstrations in February, and briefed Number 10 on his return
Ukraine : Perestroika to independence by Taras Kuzio( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
The legacy of the Soviet Union by Wendy Slater( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Legacy of the Soviet Union offers a distillation by a group of eminent scholars of their experience of the post-Soviet years. Analysis of the post-Soviet landscape is accompanied by meditations on the impact of the post-Soviet transition on both policy-makers and academics. The book therefore examines both assumptions of 'transition' and reconsiders the experience of Soviet communism in the light of its demise

Nation-building in the post-Soviet borderlands : the politics of national identities by Graham Smith( )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines how national and ethnic identities are being reforged in the post-Soviet borderland states. The first chapter provides a conceptual and theoretical context for examining national identities, drawing in particular upon post-colonial theory. The rest of the book is divided into three parts. In Part I, the authors examine how national histories of the borderland states are being rewritten especially in relation to new nationalising historiographies, around myths of origin, homeland, and descent. Part II explores the ethnopolitics of group boundary construction and how such a politics has led to nationalising policies of both exclusion and inclusion. Part III examines the relationship between nation-building and language, especially with regard to how competing conceptions of national identity have informed the thinking of both political decision-takers and nationalising intellectuals, and the consequences for ethnic minorities. Such perspectives on nation-building are illustrated with substantive studies drawn from the Baltic states, Ukraine, and Belarus, Transcaucasia, and Central Asia

What does Russia think?( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The EU's Russia policy cannot succeed as long as it continues to rest on faulty analysis and mistaken assumptions. This is the main conclusion of What does Russia think?, a collection of politically revealing essays by intellectuals whose views influence the Kremlin, which the European Council on Foreign Relations has published today. The collection includes essays by Fyodor Lukyanov, Valery Fadeev, Vyacheslav Glazychev, Gleb Pavlovsky and Leonid Polyakov. Despite a tendency toward insularity, the policy debate in Russia as reflected through these essays is ongoing and lively. As ECFR Russia experts Ivan Krastev, Mark Leonard and Andrew Wilson write in their joint introduction, "If we want to influence and deal with Russia, we need to understand it. But if we want to understand Russia, we should be interested in it. Unfortunately, we are not. Taken together, these essays show that the EU will only be able to develop an effective approach to Moscow if its policy makers rediscover some of the curiosity for Russia's internal debates that they had during the Cold War."--Publisher description
Ukraine: from Perestroika to independence by Taras Kuzio( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
